I don't use Ubuntu and I don't use the Software Center, but I think this is a victory for common sense if it is true:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Is they looking at a true rolling release or just a way to update Apps etc;
With their release record don't know if this would be any better :) releasing bugs every week is not good :(

The idea was not about turning Ubuntu into a rolling release distro:

Anyway from what malspa posted it looks as if the rumour is untrue anyway.
