Canonical to Update Open-source Server OS
April 20, 2010
Canonical says it will release an updated version of its production-ready server operating system, Ubuntu 10.04 Long Term Support (LTS) Server Edition, on April 29, 2010. As noted in this PC World report, this will be the first version of an LTS server to feature the Eucalyptus cloud platform.
"Like other Canonical LTS releases, this Linux kernel-based OS has been designed for users who require long-term support and maximum stability, said Matt Asay, the company's chief operating officer. It will be supported with free maintenance and security updates for five years. (Canonical's non-LTS releases typically are supported for 18 months.)"
