Re: 13.04 Not worth the trouble
I've often thought it was a defensive reaction - which is really unnecessary. Not only that, but it's been my observation, that it does little to improve OP's frustrations.
What exactly is the point of those inevitable "works fine" chorus every time a user does point out some problems? Do you suggest the OP is just too stupid or has bad karma?
Staying with LTS's has proved to be a rewarding policy and using a petition or separate HDD allows testing of new releases prior to committing. The best solution IMHO is to try all new releases and assure they're fully functional, then decide if the upgrade is beneficial.
With 5 home systems running Xubuntu and following the LTS policy, we've had zero issues. Stability, is one of my demands and the LTS's have consistently delivered.
Just my $0.02
