I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on an old XP computer (dual boot) figuring I was good until 2017. It's a Emachines T3065 with a AMD Athon XP 3000+. So I was doing updates and noticed "New Hardware Support" in addition to the normal security updates.
Clicked it and this came up.
Your current Hardware Enablement Stack (HWE) is going out of support on 08/07/2014. After this date security updates for critical parts (kernel and graphics stack) of your system will no longer be available. For more information, please see: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/1204_HWE_EOL
I have three options at least.
You have three options: Install 12.04.5 HWE (Trusty kernel/graphics)
Upgrade to 14.04 LTS
Fresh install of 14.04 LTS
I hope the computer doesn't choke on 14.04
Edit: So I decided to go with the first option and am good till 2017 :-)
