I recently upgraded Ubuntu 11.10 to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS after but after noticing degraded performance and several bugs in 12.04. I downgraded back to 11.10 which now zips along quite fine as before, on my machine.
However what I would like clarified is that after support for 11.10 is stopped in April, if I decide to do a clean install of 11.10 on a machine, will the update manager still offer to install the (last) updates and security fixes that were made for 11.10 or will it simply offer to upgrade to 12.04 LTS.
If I add other ppa's such as google google chrome and spotify etc. will/can they still offer upgrades for their software?
