I am new to Ubuntu & want to dual boot my Windows 7 laptop. Which version of Ubuntu should I install if I want better performance with greater stability. Since there are significantly more tags for 12.04 than 12.10 on this website, is 12.04 better? My Laptop has 64 bit architecture, so I will be installing the 64 bit version. Thank You.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

12.04 is a Long Term Stable version. It will give you 5 years of support from its release date. You could make a live-usb for each one of them and try both before installing them. The choice really is up to you. –  don.joey Apr 11 '13 at 9:42
12.04 has more tags on AU >:) By the way: askubuntu.com/questions/272468/… –  Rinzwind Apr 11 '13 at 9:45
Thank You for the answers. @Private what do you mean by "5 years of support"? Do you mean updates? –  Cool_Coder Apr 11 '13 at 10:12
I mean both updates and support on Ask Ubuntu. –  don.joey Apr 11 '13 at 12:34
