Errr, like not fixing functional breakage even though the package is in 
a current LTS release and even though patches that work were provided by 
others. eg: Hardy -> pidgin which lost YM capabilities.

Backports like the big ones RH did for C5 do not exist in any Ubuntu 

So please, do not ever compare Ubuntu LTS with RHEL. Ubuntu LTS is a 
joke. Of course, currently Centos 6 is a joke too but the landscape is 
probably going to change very soon.
