I will have a look at the next upcoming linux desktop with long life

I ponder the same problem. Is there any idea on what will the linux
The next kubuntu version, I belief April 2008, with long term support
for desktop, that mean 3 years.
It's a shame cause of fc6 is here running very stable as my desktop. It
recognizes all my hardware and everything performes just fine.
However, I've argued with myself over this for a while and, while I like
Kubuntu (my Mom uses it), I am sold on Gentoo. No upgrade cycle is
needed, since you upgrade packages as you want/need. Granted the one
downside is you have to compile everything, but, for me, that's a small
price to pay for no upgrade cycle.
Debian testing (or even SID) is like that.
I tried Gentoo a while go, and it didn't work well for me. I had build
dependancy loop problems (having used pine for years, I was curious
about cone) that took too long (months) to resolve. Cone wasn't the only
package, the system wasn't really useful.
