ΜAfter about 20 years, the Ubuntu distribution finally changes updates and becomes a "rolling" release, just as the Arch Linux distribution is updated.
While there are many positives to Arch's world, the rolling distribution feature is what sets it apart. Although I do not think that Judd Vinet (creator of Arch Linux) could predict the success of his distribution or the reversal of some distributions in rolling computing, it will be interesting to see if the whole industry follows the strategy of Arch Linux.
As we mentioned earlier, Microsoft has adopted one rolling update model in Windows.
Since its first release in 2004, Ubuntu has released two releases a year. Even today, the distribution cycle has not changed. Of course, a 6-month release cycle was nothing new when Ubuntu was released, as there was a Fedora distribution, although it does not always follow the same strict schedule.
Somewhere here comes Rolling Rhino which turns Ubuntu into a rolling distribution.
How does it work?
According to the documentation, it is achieved mainly by monitoring the "devel" repositories, which exist for each release but are not often used in production.
Finally, you should use their modified 'rhino-update' command, which extends the capabilities of apt and allows the distribution to be updated outside of the traditional Ubuntu version.
