Ubuntu 12.04 is a Long Term Support Release (LTS) while 13.04 is a Regular Release.
If you want the latest and cutting edge technologies that Ubuntu has to offer, you may use 13.04 (or 13.10) but if you are looking for a tried and proven stable environment with continuous updates in the near future, I will stick with 12.04.
It will basically depend on your preference and the environment that you will be using your Ubuntu box. Take for example if I will be making a production server, I would rather install Ubuntu 12.04 (or any LTS Release) because of the updates that will come its way. However, if I will be using it on a daily basis, I may want to try the new and cutting edge technologies which will bring me to install the latest release.
