For Kubuntu/Xubuntu? Yes. You can do an in place upgrade from one LTS to
another even, so from 8.04 (2008) to 10.04 (2010), and skipping all the 6
month releases in between.

Yes, that was true for the one or two releases that had KDE 4.x in it, and
preceded 10.04. With 10.04, it is very stable. I am typing this from my
laptop that has been running it ever since it came out.
