I used 14.04 for a few months, until my HDD died, and i noticed that after a updates, some sort of error always occures, being some freezes, compatibility issues, shortcuts not working, system freezing after opening LibreOffice ..etc.

I could live with those problems, but i want to know if maybe 12.04 is better.

What are the differences between them?

Is 12.04 more stable since its older, does it have better compatibility, less frequent freezes, or any other thing?


I use Ubuntu 12.04 with all my two PC. I haven't errors. With Ubuntu 14.04 I had nvidia driver issues on my Desktop pc, so I downgraded at 12.04. It is supported until 2017,too.
