Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS to Deliver the Kernel & Graphics Stack from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

The company behind one of the widely used GNU/Linux distributions has announced that Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (Trusty Tahr) will offer users the latest Linux kernel and graphics stacks from the current LTS (Long Term Support) version of the operating system, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. However, Canonical is also informing those who chose to remain on the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS platform until its end of life that, by the time the Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS point release is out, they will no longer provide security updates and bug fixes for older hardware enablement (HWE) stacks for the Trusty Tahr operating system.
