Ubuntu has a something like 18 month support cycle for its releases.  That 
may not be enough for many corporate enviroments.  They are planning an 
"enterprise" edition eventually with a longer support cycle, but I haven't 
heard any details beyond that yet.  Not sure when they're planning their 
first enterprise release.
