    It looks to be supported by Ubuntu Kernel Team until April this year, so you're probably okay until then.

    Maybe an updated kernel will be available after that time, but I can't say for sure.

    Strange.
    Linux Lite 2.8 is based on Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS.
    Is it already EOL ?

    I'm on
    Code:
    03:19 PM ~ $ uname -r
    3.13.0-77-generic
    03:26 PM ~ $
    
    I'm running Lubuntu 14.04.3 LTS. Have you been offered a kernel update?
    What do you see with
    sudo apt-get update
    followed by
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    ?

    If the Kernel is being maintained somewhere, I think it's fine to use it.

    Then it's being maintained somewhere :p I hope. And isn't this Kernel also being used on Ubuntu 14.04.3? So you have two organizations maintaining it.

    Mint 17.3, which is based on the same distro, presently uses 3.19.0-32-generic.

    I ran sudo aptitude full upgrade in the terminal on linux lite and it updated.I wish lite had the same kernel updating function as mint.
