"Ubuntu 16.04 LTS information with details of advanced features including support for Ubuntu 16.04 which will last for 5 years."
"Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) Officially Released, today, April 21, 2016, Canonical has officially launched the new version of its widely used Ubuntu Linux operating system for PCs, laptops, netbooks, tablets, and smartphones."
"Ubuntu 16.04 is now the latest and most advanced version of the Ubuntu OS, which has been dubbed Xenial Xerus by Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth. It is an LTS (Long Term Support) release that will receive updates and security patches for five years, during which multiple point releases will be made available Ubuntu 16.04.1 and Ubuntu 16.04.2."
"Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) uses a long-term supported Linux kernel, version 4.4, which will also receive security updates and bug fixes for a few more years than a normal kernel release would. And when Linux kernel 4.4 LTS reaches end of life, Canonical will most certainly continue to support it until the end of life of the Ubuntu 16.04 LTS operating system, until the year 2021, that is."
