    Excellent explanations on the concept of stability. As far as simplicity, that will be more subjective. Some find Unity to be simple, others prefer a different flavor, such as Xubuntu. The same arguments for stability would carry over to these as well.

    But if you think this is getting needlessly complicated, which it is (as do most threads in any given linux forum ) then just download 12.04, burn to a live DVD and try it!

    I am new to Ubuntu.

    I've heard from friends that "ubuntu" would be simple/easy to work ...& , as personal just looked at the UBuntu interface/look , which sounds great.

    Can someone please let me know the stable version of UBuntu (which doesn't have any error in the OS) which I can download and use it?

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Thanks
    Kiran

    Which is completely not the question asked by the OP.

    Actually on my netbook, which uses the infamous cedarview gpu and therefore has some hardware support issues in linux, 13.04 is far more stable than 12.04 was. And not just for video performance either.

    On my more powerful laptop I mostly use at home I have 12.04 installed, and I haven't felt much need to upgrade to a newer version.

    On my oldest laptop I also have 12.04, and I definitely won't be upgrading that one. The AMD integrated gpu in that one is not supported by AMD for any post 12.04 versions, so it'd work but I'd lose 3D video hardware acceleration.

    I would consider all official (not pre release alpha or beta versions, also called +1) releases stable. But if you upgrade from the lts you may have to do some reconfiguring because the drivers have changed.

    For example on my netbook, the wireless driver congfiguration for 13.04 was different from 12.04. This does not mean that 13.04 is less stable in this case. I had far worse problems with the wireless in 12.04. This was just tweaking it a bit.

    So I'd also suggest trying the 12.04 live cd (actually I just use a usb stick now, it's much faster). See if everything works. If it does with the lts, go for it. It's probably the best way IMO if everything works. Buty you won't get the newest software packages. There are advantages and disadvantages either way.l
