Karmi and co. pleez take note:
I don’t know about you peepels but I, for one, couldn’t live happily with a Linux distro that’s gonna die after only 9 months of existence and must be replaced by a newer version. What a fukn waste. And, hey, it’s the same in Mint but they have a nifty update system so you won’t need to re-install your whole OS.
After Ubuntu 18.10 reaches end of life, you won’t get the security updates, you won’t get maintenance updates on your installed software and soon you won’t even be able to install programs from Ubuntu repositories.
This is applicable to all the official Ubuntu flavors including Kubuntu 18.10, Lubuntu 18.10, Ubuntu Studio 18.10, Xubuntu 18.10, Ubuntu Budgie 18.10 and so on.
If you are using Ubuntu 18.10, you must upgrade to Ubuntu 19.04
Boy, am I happy to be on my “toy OS”, as Karmi calls it, which is always rolling, always fresh, always up-to-date and sooperdooper easy to maintain. Okay, I can understand the league of old gentlemen; they will always find something to tinker and experiment with in Ubuntu-ish distros, where Orca and her housewives club just install once and roll into eternity with an always workable production system.
Honest now, girls, I said – rather typed – it more than once already, didn’t I? If you’re cool with your Mint and know your way around the ropes, why don’t you give ArchLinux a chance? You’ll find the same easypeasy installer and your favourite desktop as well. Be it Cinnamon, Mint, KDE or whatever, it’s all there.
But don’t listen to me, I’m just a blue-haired beach bimbo with no brain. 😮
