How long will I be able to update in KDE 3.5.10?

Postby nickt1862 on Wed Aug 19, 2009 6:19 pm

With Linux Mint 5 CE KDE 3.5.10, how long will I be able to still update without it being "infected" (if so) with KDE 4.xxx updates?

I'm questioning how long the Mint/Ubuntu repositories will accommodate KDE 3.5.10 updates without breaking the OS.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You will never be "infected with kde 4 updates", even when support ends you will be able to continue using the system (but slightly less securely). Elyssa is a Long Term Support (LTS) release, meaning it will be supported for 3 years in total. According to http://www.linuxmint.com/download_lts.php this is currently equivalent to April 2011

Hint - use a google search including the search term site:forums.linuxmint.com
