As people seem to be confused about this, I'd like everyone to know that the 3.8 kernel is NOT going to be a longterm kernel release that is supported by me, or by anyone else that I know of.

Hopefully this puts a stop to this crazy rumor, if anyone has any questions about this, please let me know, and forward this on to anyone else that needs to see it.

when can we expect a LT release ? 4.0 ?

any heads up for what will you improve ? add ? remove ?
... provide the program "as is" without warranty of any kind... 
But I think it's time for a new LTS kernel!?
Ah enterprise vendor kernel speculating ftw
+Dave Airlie no, even worse, "embedded Linux vendor wanting me to do their work for them."  At least they admit it to my face, which is refreshing...
+Michael Sirjue the kernel is the core, the heart of the linux, it controls the CPU, how the information in memory ( RAM ) is saved ( and when it should be erased ), The filesystem ... keeps you from getting hacked ( iptables, if configured properly ) / you can find more info here ->
features man!! i don't mind knowing that
Personally, I'm OK with there not being an official LTS kernel.  On servers that I care about long term support, we pay a vendor for it.  And boxes we don't care, I stick linux-next on it and wait to see what breaks this time. :)
