Linux Mint 18.2 Ubuntu-based operating system is named 'Sonya'

Ubuntu 12.04 Reaching End of Life This Week   

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is reaching the end of life on 28th April 2017. If you or your organization is using Ubuntu 12.04, it is time to plan your upgrade.

You might already be aware that there are two types of release with Ubuntu: long-term support (LTS) and regular release. A regular release is supported for nine months while an LTS release is supported for five years.

Once a release reaches the end of life, it stops getting security updates from Ubuntu. The only exception to this rule is if you are a paying customer to Ubuntu, you can delay the mandatory upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 by purchasing Ubuntu 12.04 Extended Security Maintenance (ESM).

Microsoft begins denying updates to some Windows 7 users   

Microsoft this week began blocking Windows 7 and 8.1 PCs equipped with the very newest processors from receiving security updates, making good on a policy it announced but did not implement last year.

But the company also refused to provide security fixes to Windows 7 systems that were powered by AMD's "Carrizo" CPUs, an architecture that was supposed to continue receiving patches.


The decree that led to the update bans, whether allowable or not under Microsoft's new policy, was revealed in January 2016, when the company said making Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 run on the latest processors was "challenging." Microsoft then ruled that Windows 10 would be the only supported edition on seventh-generation and later CPUs and simultaneously dictated a substantial shortening of support of both editions.
