Strongly disagree.  I upgraded from 8.04 "Heron" to 8.10 "Ibex", and
found it so buggy that I actually downgraded several machines to 8.04
(including my main box).  LTS (long-term support) releases like 8.04
will by definition always be more stable than the "let's release every
six months whether it's ready or not" versions.

This is why I don't think it's that big a deal that the real-time kernel
is not available for Studio 8.10; I've stayed on 8.04 and been happy.
