Hi all,

i was asking myself exactly the same question lately. given the fact that 
in productive environments servers are running for years and years, the 
lts looses its sense, if i cannot upgrade from say 6.06 to 8.04. servers 
tend to become very differentiated buildings in time which may not that 
easy been build again from scratch. so upgrading to the next productive
version seems crucial to me as a criteria for longterm reliability of a 
distri. that was the reason for us to run debian since last century 
despite of its outmodedness especially at the end of a release circle. for 
ubuntuserver that seems to be an important point in the long run for its 
standing in the servermarket. it shouldnt become the flipside of the 
desktopsuccess hopefully.
