Debian 7 Wheezy May Become A LTS (Long Term Supported) Release

Hello Linux Geeksters. The Debian developers are planning to make their Debian Wheezy a LTS release in order to provide support for a longer period of time.

Debian 7 Wheezy May Become A LTS (Long Term Supported) Release

Among the most popular systems, Red Hat Enterprise Linux has 10 years support, Ubuntu LTS is supported for 5 years while the Evergreen (LTS) versions of OpenSUSE get updates for 30 more months, after the usual 18 month support.

The LTS systems don’t get too many new features after the official release, only security updates, bug-fixes and kernel updates, in order to support more hardware.

While Canonical and Red Hat pay their developers to release security updates, Debian has less manpower.
