The LTS releases are focused on stability as opposed to features.  The
releases in between are really nothing more than betas since 6 months is not
long enough IMO to polish a release.

Having spent 15 years running Linux, I have learned that it really does pay
to do some research before buying any hardware.  It has been a while since I
have suffered from badly behaving hardware.
