"With Canonical’s decision to push their offered support period for LTS or Long Term Support versions to a period of 5 years, users who have non-LTS versions of Ubuntu cannot hope for such good news. Not long after making the decision to halve the support available for non-LTS ‘flavors’ of the Ubuntu Linux, Canonical has finally released the names of the three popular distributions of Linux that will be pushed into retirement."

Note:
Its a sad day to see a free open source software organization nail the coffin closed but Canonical has done just that. With the release of its new interface "Unity" its lost a lot of respect from its own community plus the respect of other major players in the OOS field. Its almost a shame that It will most likely follow Microsoft out the door in 4 years.
