Mark Shuttleworth Says Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Will Be Supported for 10 Years

During a keynote at the OpenStack Summit 2018 conference, which took place last week in Berlin, Germany, at CityCube, from November 13th to 15th, Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth revealed the fact that the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system series will be supported with software and security updates for 10 years. Ubuntu 18.04 operating system series is an LTS (Long Term Support) release that usually gets five years of support with software and security updates, as well as regular point releases. However, Canonical’s key focus on Telcos for Ubuntu deployments, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will get 10 years of support instead of 5 like other LTS releases.
