I really don't see the need to have a new release every 6 months. Maybe the developers get bored :-), but as a business user I don't like upgrading so often, Also presenting a stable environment for commercial software vendors is 'a good thing' imho.

For your purposes, then, the important number is 18 months--that's how long they're promising support (in the form of security upgrades) for each version, so that's how often you'd probably end up having to upgrade.

(Erm, sorry, note I'm talking about Ubuntu here--no idea about Kubuntu's plans.)
