I've installed ubuntu 12.04 few weeks ago. I've noticed that many times my software crashes. I've 4gb ram and 512mb graphics card, so i don't think so that my hardware is not causing any kinds of problem. So, i've googled it out and found that there are many problems in ubuntu 12.10 version. So, i just wanted to know that shall i move to ubuntu 12.04 or not? or still it will gonna be creating any kinds of problem. Before i'm using ubuntu 9.04 and it was working like a charm and i decided to upgrade my ubuntu version to 12.10 because of it's cool visuality and graphics.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
When "software" crash there may be multiple reasons behind it!
Do not that if you upgraded from 9.04 than probably you will get lots of problems out of such upgrade. Clean reinstall should be better.
And when you done clean installation (fresh one), then make sure that GPU drivers are properly configured. (And use AMD/Nvidia proprietary ones if you do not know what to choose).
When you are confident that Ubuntu is properly installed and configured try this routine:
If you find any relevant help than you are done. If not than use askubuntu.com or ubuntu forums for help with that application! Situations when you will not find any help are very rare. Very, very.
Reasons why you may want to go to 12.04. 3rd party developers usually support LTS versions of Ubuntu. While non-LTS support may be incomplete or slow to come. Its stable, and stagnant. Meaning less changes and less learning. Good for people who do not have much technical info.
