I'm an admin for about 50 Linux desktop users.  I've moved from Fedora
to CentOS (RHEL) due to the rather cavalier attitude of FC towards
patches and the expiration date being only slightly longer than milk.

And I'm happy with CentOS... except that I would like to have the
option of upgrading some of my customers more frequently than every
18-24 months.  Plus, a more desktop oriented distro would be nice.

Ubuntu is excellent.  I'm a long-time redhat fan, but I now use

I'm even starting to think about migrating some of my customers to it
as the opportunity arises.

But I'd like to know more about the long term release strategy.  

The LTS6.06 is supported on the desktop for 3 years.  Normal releases
are supported for 18 months (which is OK).

How frequently are LTS releases planned?
