I have to decide the best suitable version of Ubuntu for android development.As per the research what I have done, 10.04 has been a stable version of Ubuntu; but since the support has been ended from May 9, '13 onwards I would like to know which is the best version of Ubuntu that I can opt for. Kindly advice.

Regards Sudha Kumari

12:04 is the latest long term support version –  Tachyons Jul 1 '13 at 7:00
Yes. But quoting from[link] (source.android.com/source/initializing.html) Building on Ubuntu 12.04 is currently only experimentally supported and is not guaranteed to work on branches other than master.So I was bit taken aback and I'm looking for the advice regarding this. –  Sudha Jul 1 '13 at 7:17
That link seems outdated . BTW that link is about developing android, not development for android . If you are developing apps, not android os itself, you don't have to worry about it –  Tachyons Jul 1 '13 at 7:25
Thanks alot for your timely reply Tachyons. –  Sudha Jul 1 '13 at 8:29
