Ubuntu Linux Vendor Plans Upgrade, Corporate Push
,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu Linux has gained more than 2 million users worldwide since its
| release in October 2004, according to Canonical Ltd., a small vendor on
| the Isle of Man that oversees the software.
| One of the reasons we delayed the release of Ubuntu 6.06 by six weeks,
| until June, was because we plan to support it for three years on the
| desktop and five years on the server. And that decision was driven by
| requests from businesses. Both the PC vendors and business users wanted
| a longer support cycle.
