What's the difference between a Long Term Support Release and a Normal Release?
I'm new to Ubuntu (and Linux) but I want to give it a go. I've spent a few evenings trying to get 10.10 to run but I think my nVidia 8400 GS is causing trouble; only recovery mode with
failsafeX gets me to the desktop (low-res but seems to be fully functional otherwise).
Given that the xx.04 vesions are long-term support, I'm wondering whether it would be smarter for me to use that. I don't need to be on the cutting edge - I prefer to have a system that just works, long-term. Later I hope to move my media center and wife's netbook over too.
Why should I (not?) choose the 10.04 LTS version over the newest 10.10 version?
