    Take some distro config and slap it compiling in background for an hour or so. Don't use you job as an excuse for laziness or incompetence.

    You can jolly well build your own 5.6 kernel. That's the whole purpose of open-source; to let people muck and destroy their stuff in their own way.
    That's not even necessary, as the kernel.ubuntu.com team does provide every mainline Linux Kernel version precompiled for anyone to use (but remember for good or for worse, those won't have Canonical's tweaks: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/FAQ/UbuntuDelta)

    It's what UKUU and other 3rd-party kernel update utilities (eg: https://github.com/pimlie/ubuntu-mainline-kernel.sh) tipically target for install on Ubuntu.

    That. Some of us just want to know our stuff will work. It's not that we can't go "BTW, I use Arch", it's that we've been there, done that, and don't feel like doing it.

    When did Linux start catering to babies who don't even know how what a compiler is?

    Really? Their release schedule says kernel freeze isn't until April 9th, a full two weeks before release.
    That means no new kernel uploads for other than critical updates after that date, it doesn't mean the last day for a major kernel version bump.

    If one feels Ubuntu does not give kernel upgrades fast enough, later versions' deb packages can be installed manually from here.
