The 10.04 Server has 5 years support for SRU and Security fixes, thus
ending in April 2015.
By extension, you will receive security support for packages that
overlap between server & desktop (aka core packages).
You will no longer be receiving web-browser security fixes and 3rd
party vendors are also removing 10.04 support (Google Chrome).

If you have a significant deployment and need assistance in continuing
support and/or migrating to precise, I'd recommend you to contact
Canonical and seek Ubuntu Advantage support [1]

ps. gnome-session-fallback is available in Precise which provides
interface very similar to what was in 10.04.
