    Phoronix: Ubuntu Aims For Higher Quality LTS Point Releases

    New restrictions will be in place beginning with Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS this summer to try to enforce better quality releases with less regressions by enforcing better quality control...

    "...better quality control" than what, and when, exactly?

    Ubuntu's BETTER QUALITY CONTROL is precisely why Linux Mint lost its many-year-long ranking as the #1 distro (and will never recover), just as soon as Mint adopted Ubuntu LTS (starting with 16.04) as its base. Linux Mint now = Ubuntu Mint.

      It adopted Ubuntu LTS with 14.04 in 2014. If you mean distowatch ranking, it was actually number 1 untill 2018 when it was overtaken by Manjaro.

        Funny thing about Distrowatch - looking at their past 30 day data, almost all of the ups were distributions that either Michael wrote about or we discussed in the forums afterwards.

          Ultimately, it will become Debian again

              Higher quality means more outdated software, right ?
