We are currently looking at Ubuntu to power our school district's computing resources. I am familiar with, and use 10.04LTS, but am not a guru.
The computers at the schools are several years old, and I thought we could upgrade the OS to Ubuntu instead of Windows to save money on the front end by not having to upgrade the hardware right off. I have Ubuntu 10.04 LTS running as smooth as silk on a computer I built for my son 8 years ago.
I see Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is out. Can we use that to upgrade the OS on the old computers, or should we go with an older version?
