2.6.1, actually.  Ubuntu ships with 2.6.2.

There are actually some good reasons to switch to 2.6 - context 
managers, etc, and language constructions that are available in 3.x.

A better set of questions to ask are, "do you really need to stay old 
rather than current?" and "Does this application need 2.x rather than 3.x?"
