      i believe the servers are the same for all distributions. Example http://mirror.fcaglp.unlp.edu.ar/ this server host 4 distributions packages. There are no especific Ubuntu servers...

          I would think four, not three, unless they are going to skip a release, but I saw no mention of that in Clem's post.

            Great, now Mint is going to be out of date nearly to the point of being useless.

            What distro to I recommend to newbies now?

              Personally I don't trust small distros much, hence you might use:

                    Ubuntu's, LTS's get full back ports from there Development releases, so you don't have to worry about it getting dated any more.
