If we stay on LTS (which seems to be the case so far), then our next 
base switch will be for OSGeoLive 8.0 (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS).
I am ok switching to Lubuntu then (if it still exists/supported/playing 
well with Mir.....)

In the meanwhile:
1. Xubuntu offers upgrades to point releases (12.04.2) but no amd64+mac 
2. Lubuntu offers amd64+mac but no point releases (iso still at 12.04)
3. Both offer amd64.
