It's a really simple question. I was just wondering since it has far reaching implications for the site, and it is a substantial change to the ecosystem.

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for Ubuntu users and developers.

    Since the status of what derivatives are official is a general Ubuntu matter (and not specific to, nor determined by, the Ask Ubuntu sub-community), this question should probably be migrated to main. (Most of the question, and all of the answer, are AU-nonspecific.) – Eliah Kagan Jul 22 '13 at 2:44
  • I find hbdgaf comments related to LTS for other Ubuntu flavors very good. Trying to look for a source that says if any of the Ubuntu flavors has LTS supports is very hard. – Luis Alvarado Jul 22 '13 at 3:09

What funding are you talking about. If it is about Canonical (Which was a year ago) then please read this

At the current state, the development cycle will continue as normal and will meet the deadline as it has always done. You can see all development release dates in wikipedia

For what it matters, Kubuntu (KDE) for me is my second best distro and Ubuntu flavor.

  • I was talking about the year ago thing. I was considering the change in the context of LTS releases, where a year is really not a valid unit of measurement for the type of issue to which I was referring. Thanks for the info and accept. – RobotHumans Jul 22 '13 at 2:12
  • @hbdgaf Lubuntu doesn't have LTS releases anymore and they're still supported.. – Seth Jul 22 '13 at 2:28
  • @Seth I don't think Lubuntu ever had LTS releases. According to Wikipedia, Lubuntu started with 10.04, and Lubuntu 10.04 was non-LTS (while "vanilla" Ubuntu was LTS.) If I'm not mistaken, this further supports your main point--Lubuntu and Kubuntu don't have LTS releases, but are definitely considered official. – Eliah Kagan Jul 22 '13 at 2:45
