Opinion requested for your Ubuntu LTS experts!
So in the next couple of weeks I really, really need a new AWS instance that runs Ubuntu LTS. The current one of course in 14.04, but I'd rather have 16.04. But, the official release is still months away! Since this computer will be for a development environment, but probably cool with having a pre-release version, it really just comes down to what's less of a pain to upgrade. What takes less time headaches, etc. This server will have Jenkins, nGinx, PHP, node, git, standard dev stuff.
So, would you:
- Make a 14.04 LTS server now, and upgrade to 16.04 LTS in early May? , or
- Make a 16.04 LTS pre-release server now, and upgrade to full release in early May?
It's a question of time and/or stability/package headaches.
