Default Question about upcoming release of Ubuntu 9.04

The question is this; is Ubuntu 9.04 to be an LTS version of Ubuntu?

Thank you in anticipation.

I think that will be 10.04; 10.04.1 will be about 90 days after release

If 9.04 is not an LTS release, and it would thence be logical that
upgrade from 8.10 will be to 9.04, as 8.04 will be being supported and
updated after support for 8.10 has ceased (or so I believe), will a time
come, when 8.10 will be able to be upgraded to 8.04?

I ask this, because, after having installed 8.10, when it should have
been 8.04 that I should have installed on a computer, due to 8.04 being
the LTS release, I want to find how to replace 8.10 with an LTS release
without having to lose the settings that the system now has (and all of
the data such as sent email messages), without having to wait another
year for the next LTS release.

Thank you in anticipation.

From: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download

"Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop (the latest version): Includes the latest
enhancements and is maintained until 2010

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Desktop: Released April 2008 and maintained until
April 2011 – ideal for large deployments."


The fact that LTS will be supported for a long time doesn't mean it
will have "the latest enhancements", just the essential adjustments.

If you need a well tested and conservative system choose LTS. If you
want the most recent updates (and sometimes a little bit of trouble) ,
go for the state of the art, last non-LTS version.

(What kind of problems are you facing with 8.10 to want to downgrade to 8.04.1?)

(And by the way, AFAICT there's no downgrading path, you will need to
perform a new install. If your /home was installed on an independent
partition it will be easier for you to preserve your personal data)
