I thought 8.10 was due to be released on 10-30-2008, not in 2010 like the thread name suggests.

My mistake, I was looking at the supported until column as opposed to the release date.

I was panicking when I saw the thread title, my version of Kubuntu is supported until Oct. 2009. :thumbsup:

I'm by no means an expert with Linux, I know my way around it by reading https://help.ubuntu.com/
And following some topics at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/11/linux-unix/

Alan.
