There was a time not long ago when this question would (and should!) of been marked as a duplicate of this question or many others...
But the landscape of Ubuntu has changed since 12.04, and it will again with 14.04.
My question is this:
Who should run the LTS now? Is it just business and servers, or is it now casual users, home users and students as well?
On the other hand, since the regular releases are not as major as they used to be, would they be safe for students and casual users? Could a someone depend on their laptop day in and day out on a regular release?
What are the Pros and Cons of each now?
Specifically I ask because I'm an engineering and physics student. I do a lot of programming, CAD (VMWared SolidWorks), and writing (LaTeX). I want to know whats best for me since I can't have my computer unstable.
