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.
