We all knew this was coming and now it is finally here. As of today, May 9th, Ubuntu is no longer offering support for their 8.04 LTS Server (Hardy Heron), 10.04 LTS Desktop (Lucid Lynx), and 11.10 Desktop (Oneiric Ocelot) editions. So grab some blank DVDs, fire up your favorite disc burning software, and get ready to update your systems.

One important note to keep in mind is that support for the Server Edition of 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) will continue for another two years.

You can learn more details about the end of support as well as download newer versions of Ubuntu Desktop and Server using the links below.
