Moved it here as this is not a problem with Linux Mint that others can help you solve. You shared a broken link, here is the link to the article: http://www.webupd8.org/2013/03/ubuntu-t ... g.html?m=1
This news has just been shared today so what it will mean for Linux Mint might take the developers a little more time to consider. Keep an eye on the blog, as surely the Linux Mint developers will comment on this. If not before, then with the release of Linux Mint 15.
For anybody that missed it; this change affects Ubuntu 13.04 and other future releases. Past releases, such as currently still supported Ubuntu package bases used in Linux Mint 12, 13 and 14, are not affected by this change and remain supported as per their original schedules. You can see the dates these Linux Mint releases reach end of support and become obsolete here: http://www.linuxmint.com/oldreleases.php
. Heads up for Linux Mint 12 users, just one more month to go.
