That's why I indicated the update releases in my image. And that is why I
put the release version at the end (and not at the front) of the timeline.
However, the image includes much more information than a normal individual
can get out of it without someone guiding them. So while I am not that
concerned with the fact that someone may interprete it wrongly, I do think
that the text (or explanation) that comes with it should highlight some of
the things that would normally be told during a presentation.
This slide and the next one need guidance anyhow to transfer the
BTW if you compare it to the release-cycle Canonical released after my
blog-post it is very easy to be misled by what Ubuntu LTS offers.
