Ubuntu is a Linux distribution for your desktop or server, with a fast
and easy install, regular releases, a tight selection of excellent
software installed by default, an incredible variety of add-on
software available with a few clicks, and professional technical
support from Canonical Limited and hundreds of other companies around

Ubuntu 7.04 is also the basis for new 7.04 releases of Kubuntu and Edubuntu:

Ubuntu 7.04 will be supported for 18 months on both desktops and
servers. Note that 6.06 LTS is a long-term support release, and so
users requiring a longer support lifetime may choose to continue using
that version rather than upgrade to or install 7.04.
