Please, I would like to know how risky it can be to update the kernel of Ubuntu to the latest stable version.
Currently, I am running Kubuntu 17.04 which uses the kernel 4.10.0-22-generic. The latest stable Kernel version at the time of writing this question is: 4.11.4.
In addition to that, it would be great if you can point out any Ubuntu or Debian-based distribution that uses the latest stable version of the kernel.
Any suggestions, comments, or answers will be greatly appreciated.
