    No wait, HTTP 0.9 ? Wasn't it obsoleted like (looking this up as I only remember a generic "long time ago") in 1996 by HTTP 1.0 ?
    Why is it even supported until now lol?
    Who is still using it anyway?

        Why would they? I was using 51, now I'm using 52 and I'm sure it will be upgraded to 53 once it reaches stable channel.

          Lubuntu and Kubuntu have not yet released the 52.... I'm stand on 52 since oe or 2 monthes.

            From memory, it's some niche embedded cases... devices like routers with some ancient web management tools. Not something that most people need, but obviously there are going to be some people who care a great deal about it...

                Finally: death to http/0.9. I've seen to many systems still using http/0.9 because the developers don't know http, making me have to write proxies that still support HTTP/0.9 . Now it will fail directly on their testbed.
                OTOH: those devices usually only work with IE6

                  Apparently Chrome 52 will do, too.
                  At least for HTTP support, Chrome probably can't render the mess IE6 can.

                    It's because *buntu tends to have outdated "but stable" packages. In practice their stability is questionable. E.g. KDE is quickly evolving, and Kubuntu tends to have outdated version, with a bunch of bugs, fixed upstream. You can migrate to, e.g., Archlinux, like I recently did. It can take a while to install the first time (though, when you everything know, it could be installed for ≈15 minutes), but I find it much better in many aspects. E.g., whatever people say about systemd, but it actually very simplifies administration of the system, so in some sense Arch is even easier than Ubuntu :Ь
