Ubuntu 20.04 nearing EOSL

ph flag

I see Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is EOSL in Apr 2025.

I see ESM until 2030. As part of open source will this be available free of cost or is any cost required?

Ubuntu Pro access is a paid service for companies, but individual users can get a free token for up to 5 machines (including either physical or virtual machines) by logging in to the Ubuntu Pro Dashboard.

Also see this Q&A to learn what an Ubuntu Pro subscription covers.

"Free token for up to 5 machines" means you don't have to pay as an individual user. If you're a company, then you need to pay.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
