Re: To those who do NOT use only LTS versions. Please be tolerant with us...
This is a very good response. I do want to add one thing though.

12.04.1 is due July 19th. 12.04.2 is due 1-31-13. These are basically just new install disks that are up to date on packages.
Anytime you upgrade you will be up to date on packages anyway but I think that just about any time between those 2 releases is a good time to upgrade a LTS.
I may not use Ubuntu but my wife uses 10.04 and sometime in there I will be upgrading her box.
