Re: Do I pick Ubuntu 12.04 or 13.04
Others have already mentioned this ... but I will emphasize this -- one major factor is the graphics chipset you have in your PC.
Because if you have an AMD chipset of the HD 2x/3x/4x variety, the latest Ubuntu version that will support AMD restricted drivers is 12.04.1. Starting with 12.04.2, and continuing with 12.10 and 13.04, the X-server version got upgraded to a new version that is incompatible with the AMD restricted drivers for those chipsets.
If you don't have one of those AMD chipsets, or if you're willing to live with the default Radeon open source drivers, then the choice really is up to you.
