Ahh, spun up 12.04 in a little VM. Kinda surprised gwibber (remember that) still works! mastodon.social/media/8qqMLoJR

@popey I'm surprised Gwibber still works as well. Seemed it was always prone to being just a step or two behind API updates.

@craigmaloney Yeah, I expected it to all fall apart as soon as I added an account. Happy to see it works.

yay for backwards compatibility :) (ostatus probably haven't move that much forward sins then)

@popey Believe it or not, Weta Digital was still on 12.04 when I left in 2016. We were just starting to transition to 14.

@klaatu This is why we extended support on 12.04. People were very sticky on that release! 14.04 too. Something like 10x more people run LTSs than non-LTS.

@popey As a Slacker, I appreciate that tendency.
