Lo and behold.... I guess they do still support it until 2017.
The problem is, in any case, its too out of date for us to support.

Debian 6 and ubuntu 12.04 are both running much older versions of packages
that are incompatible with what the latest FS needs.
Its possible to manually install some of these updates but then it breaks
the administration packaging so you could make your own packages to update
it but its also a large hassle for the end user.

Even when some users managed to get it to build on 12.04 there were bugs in
things like openssl that caused crashes etc that were all solved by
updating the OS.

Besides, its using a much older kernel that is not able to fully take
advantage of the more modern intel CPU and suffers from several issues
regarding powersaving / sleep and system hanging.

I guess bottom line is, if you want legacy OS, use legacy FS from that same
time period.
1.2 probably still runs on 12.04 but you are not completely safe from the
power saving and CPU issues.

We don't say you can't use it just that we cannot support it.
