End of support for Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) Netbook and ARM

Personally, Im sad to see the security & fixes end for these releases. Im still running 10.04 netbook edition on my little Acer AspireOne. I love the simple layout. Its like a pre-Unity design, which IMO works better than Unity since I have all of the different categories right at my fingertips. But hey, life goes on and soon enough I will take the leap and put 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot on my netbook which Im excited to do. Finding time is another story! - I Heart Ubuntu


Ubuntu announced the 10.04 Netbook Edition and Ubuntu for ARM products
18 months ago, on April 29, 2010.   At that time, Ubuntu committed to
ongoing security and critical fixes for a period of 18 months for these
specific products.

This support period is now ending, and on October 29, 2011 the 10.04
Netbook Edition and Ubuntu for ARM products will no longer be supported.
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Desktop and Server products continue to be supported.

The upgrade path from Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook and ARM is to Ubuntu 10.10.
Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for Desktop and Server products continues to be
actively supported with security updates and select high-impact bug
fixes. All announcements of official security updates for Ubuntu
releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing list,
information about which may be found at

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most
highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes,
schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open
Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to
customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.
