I guess if someone was wanting to evaluate Ubuntu as an enterprise
choice vs. say RHEL, SuSE or other options, having a reasonably
up-to-date Server page with complete information would be something I
would expect. I was under the impression that was where Canonical was
wanting to go with their Server version? 'Community' or no, I am a bit
surprised the company doesn't keep up their website a little better.
You might go to packages.ubuntu.com; I might go to DistroWatch and
compare various distributions/releases, and someone else might have
another way. But neither excuses Canonical from keeping their .com site
up to date.
