Ubuntu 24.04 Gets 12 Years of Long-Term Support

It’s official–in an interview with Destination Linux, the CEO of Canonical, Mark Shuttleworth, it was revealed that the next release of Ubuntu, 24.04 (along with some unspecified older LTS versions), will be receiving 12 total years of support from the company. Some of that support will come from their free-for-personal-use Ubuntu Pro subscription, but it’s still cool to see.

It’s FOSS News did a great job at summarizing the interview, if you just want the highlights.
