In all cases, except for a few, I recommend that you stay with the latest
Long Term
Support release (LTS). This is currently 10.04, with its successor expected
in April 2012. This way you get security releases for up to 3 years for the
desktop (5 years for servers).

Unless you are experimenting, this is the way I would recommend that you go.
