    How Do Prereleases (like 11.10 Oneiric) Work?

    If I install 11.10 on my computer, will it receive normal updates? When the stable version of 11.10 comes out, will it upgrade to that stable version?

    Also, how unstable is it (I'm specifically planning to install Xubuntu, but it's really just a general question)? Will it be usable for everyday computing?

    It will receive updates that are made for 11.10. It will become the same as the stable version of 11.10 when it is released, simply through these updates.

    I don't know about Xubuntu's stability, but it should be more stable than Ubuntu 11.10 currently is because the changes from before aren't as significant to my knowledge.
