Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS Update Released
Phoronix: Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS Update Released
Ubuntu 10.04 may be just around the corner and it will be a Long-Term Support (LTS) release, which means it will be supported longer on desktops and servers than normal releases, but Canonical still has contractual obligations to continue supporting the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS release too. Canonical is supporting the Ubuntu 8.04 LTS "Hardy Heron" on desktops until 2011 and server installations will continue to receive love until 2013...
Ah -- that must be why my video has randomly stopped working again in 8.04.
