Goodbye Ubuntu 9.10


Dear Ubuntu 9.10 users, the time has come to say goodbye to the Karmic Koala release of the popular Ubuntu operating system. One month from today, on April 29th, it reaches end of life (EOL).

Almost 18 months ago, on the 29th of October, 2009, Canonical was proud to announce the release of Ubuntu 9.10, dubbed Karmic Koala, which introduced features such as GNOME 2.28.1, Linux kernel, the EXT4 filesystem, the GRUB 2 boot loader, Home encryption, Ubuntu Software Center, XZ compression, Ubuntu One, Empathy Instant Messenger, and much more!

Starting with April 29th, 2011, Canonical will stop "feeding" the Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) operating system with security or critical fixes, and software updates!

I assume this isn't the latest release. Correct?
No it's not. The do a similar thing to Microsoft in stopping support for older versions to get people to upgrade.
Microsoft also denied support to XP and said good bye to XP after 10 years and personally i am in love with ubuntu 11.10 and ubuntu has changed a lot from version 9
