I know, someone's going to think, "don't feed the troll".  Hear me out. 
Teo teo's concerns about LTS are not trollish.  Users who elect to run 
LTS rather than incremental releases must, at some point, maintain the 
system with more current debs which approximate the incremental 
upgrades.  I always follow the incremental upgrades, as I'd rather fix a 
version which is farther along in development than LTS.  I never fully 
understood why a individual user would use LTS. LTS is better suited to 
a circumstance where uniformity is prized, such as small businesses, 
corporations, libraries etc.  Teo teo is certainly right that an LTS 
plan of action has significant deficits.
