Vista set for 2008 servicing? Ubuntu is serving you now.

I noticed several articles on the web today about Microsoft’s first service pack for Vista. It’s due sometime in 2008. See for example Vista set for 2008 servicing.

2008! Vista was released earlier this year, and the first major update is months away.

Things are much simpler in Ubuntu-land. You get service that — like the battery bunny in the commercials we know so well — just goes, and goes, and … goes.

Ubuntu 6.06, “Dapper Drake,” came out in June 2006.

Ubuntu 6.10, “Edgy Eft,” followed in October 2006.

The current stable Ubuntu release is 7.04, “Feisty Fawn.” It was served up in April 2007.

I’ve seen several articles lately about the next release, 7.10, “Gutsy Gibbon due out in October 2007 (just a few weeks from now.)

And I know that in April 2008 we’ll see another major Ubuntu release, about the same time as the first major update to Vista.

I don’t know what the Ubuntu folks plan to call it, though I know it will be two words each starting with “H.”

I’m hoping it is “Ho-ho, Hippopotamus.”
