Comment 35 for bug 653619

@Scott Kitterman
You do realize that Evolution is THE application on a corporate desktop? The only market where it is feasible for Linux to generate desktop revenue!

Backporting to Maverick is nice to have. Backporting to Lucid is essential.
Backporting essential apps via PPA's is ok for normal releases and casual users. Backporting via PPA is NOT acceptable for LTS and enterprise users.

With this kind of attitude, Ubuntu may as well drop the LTS release concept on Desktop.
If you are not willing to support LTS, better don't do it at all.
