Edgy is for someone wanting the latest innovations. It
is supported for 18 months. People who woould be most
interested in Edgy might be developers or those who
have computers as an hobby.

Dapper (606 LTS) is aimed at businesses and those who
want a stable platforn. People who mainly use dapper
would include those who want a reliable computer for
routine tasks, or as a stable platform for doing
varied types of work. 

I'm an example of the latter. I use my computers for
Graphics production and producing prints of artwork,
and business tasks such as correspondance, email, web
page building, and isnstant messaging. I will probably
use dapper until the NEXT LTS version comes out and
until I have run it on a test computer for a month or

Hope this gives you an idea for which to pick.
