Yup. After hassle with 8.10 upgrade, I've reverted back to 8.04 and 
sworn to only use LTS releases. And to only migrate to new LTS releases 
three months after their official launch date.

The LTS releases are essentially Ubuntu's "stable" branch.

In any case, seriously, who has time to upgrade all of their PCs every 6 
months? I've got 5 Ubuntu PCs, a wife, three kids and a full time job.
