3 Years Ago: Ubuntu Dapper Drake
Remember Dapper Drake? All the fuss around it, being a LTS (long-term support) release, the three-month delay in order to make things stable, all the forum discussions regarding the 3-month delay in order to polish it well.
Dapper Drake was released on June 1st, 2006 and it had version number 6.06. It was probably one of the biggest Ubuntu releases and ended up being known for its stability. After three years of security updates, support for the desktop version of Ubuntu Dapper Drake will end on July 14th, while the server edition will still be supported two more years, until June 2011.
