From a ZDnet article:
"New versions of Ubuntu Linux have been released at a steady six-month
cadence, but project founder Mark Shuttleworth is considering a six-week
delay to improve the reliability of an important new version.
The next version, called Dapper Drake, is due in April. It's the first version
that will have longer-term support commitments -- three years for the desktop
computer version and five years for servers, compared to 18 months for the
current 5.10 'Breezy Badger version.
Getting those features right is important, Shuttleworth said in an e-mail on
Friday. 'We will live with Dapper for five years -- so let's give it a few
extra weeks now so that it can be a real asset to the Ubuntu project for the
full duration of its lifespan,' Shuttleworth said."
Discuss at will, but don't shoot the messenger :P
Sorry. Nice try.
