    Or, if you prefer to build from source: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/GitKernelBuild

    (You can use these steps with the official Linux 3.8 instead of the upstream git.)

    Now, I am really hoping that kernel 3.7 is not immediately declared End Of Life just because 3.8 came out. What determines whether a kernel branch is EOL or long-term supported anyway?

    I believe the life of a regular non LTS kernel is 18 months while an LTS one is 5 years
