Ubuntu 6.06 LTS (The Dapper Drake Release) is the first long-term-supported release of Ubuntu. Dapper features a GUI installer optimised for simplicity and speed and official support for a new server architecture: SPARC.

In addition, 6.06 LTS features unofficial support for architectures such as Itanium and HPPA, broadening the active community that is working on Ubuntu.

With Dapper we also offer Kubuntu CDs via shipit.ubuntu.com, marking the first Ubuntu derivative to become a fully supported peer of Ubuntu itself.

The primary desktop is Gnome 2.14, and Dapper features Linux 2.6.15 for both servers and desktop computers.

The Dapper Drake has no packages recorded in Launchpad.
