Which kernel version does 2.8 run? Is it easy to upgrade to a later version without breaking LL?

As per the release announcement, a new install of LL 2.8 will carry Linux kernel version 3.19.  If you already have LL 2.6, your kernel will not be updated to that.  Newer kernels adopt drivers for newer hardware and dump drivers for older hardware.  So upgrading for upgrading's sake could possibly cause some things not to work.  That's why the development team opted not to include the kernel upgrade in the upgrade package.

It is easy to upgrade from version 2.6 to 2.8.  You just need to run the Install Updates utility and then run Lite Upgrade.  Follow the instructions and reboot afterwards.  As an extra layer of precaution, I created a Systemback restore point before and after running Lite Upgrade.

Have updated to 2.8 with no obvious problems so far.
I am on the 4.3 kernel
It seems to give a brighter screen (which is positive for me if true) but this may just be my old eyes :)

Release Announcement
...
Base: 14.04.3
...

Update to 2.8 and donated again.  ;D

How long will 2.8 be supported? Acording tohttp://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack#Kernel.2BAC8-Support.A14.04.x_Ubuntu_Kernel_Support it looks like this kernel will only be supported to August 2016. Does this mean 2.8 will only be supported to August 2016 and 3.0 must be installed for support?  :-\

@Coastie, 3.19 Kernel on 2.8 is supported until August, the rest of the 2.8 system is supported for the usual lifespan of an LTS, 5 years from the initial 14.04 release. Then in August 2016 you can upgrade to the Xenial HWE and get continued support for the lifespan of the LTS :)

Thanks for that little bit of information to tell me the version. Which it says is 2.2 v.
So no I guess then it is not updated.
Thanks Jerry.

I am so happy with this version of LL that I am hesitant on switching to the latest version. I am in a true quandary, Yes Or No... Hmm
And BTW... I have a Dell 755 Opitplex that this is on. It is currently at Intel duo core E4400 2.0 ghz. With 5 gb of physical ram. I have looked up online and I am not sure but I think I can get a quad core CPU and upgrade it. But I am not sure. What do you think?

@ohjrson the release announcement will answer common questions regarding upgrading.
