Reply To: It says here that Ubuntu updates every six months
I was running ubuntu 10 on an old dual-boot Dell w/ a Celeron D. Ubuntu didn’t run any faster than XP, and I never could figure out how to install a Brother printer driver.
Ubuntu fixed all that with an upgrade from V10 to V13. Something crapped out, and I couldn’t get it to work at all.
I recently did a clean install of V16, which did install. It works OK in command-line mode, but the gui looks like my old 300 baud terminal from 1982. Probably a video driver problem, but I’m only running a very plain-vanilla mother-board video chip.
So, yes, Ubuntu can fail to support or drop support for anything at any time. One gets what one pays for… and it goes down hill from there.
