Ubuntu 13.04 Reaches End of Life on January 27

Ubuntu announced that Raring Ringtail (Ubuntu 13.04) will reach the end of life on Monday, January 27. The release of Raring Ringtail was almost 9 months ago, on April 25, 2013. This was the first release with Canonical’s new 9 month support cycle. This means that the support period is now nearing its end.  As of January 27, Canonical will no longer supply critical or security fixes for it. Nor will they supply updated packages.

The article recommends upgrading to Saucy Salamander (Ubuntu 13.10), which is still being supported.  Personally, I have had to reinstall Raring because Saucy cannot handle my Realtek wifi driver.  I was able to get Saucy working once out of several attempts.  I am looking forward to Trusty Tahr (Ubuntu 14.04) developing working internet so I can safely upgrade without any further worries.
