The Universe is maintained by UBUNTU developers, more specifically a
smaller group of ubuntu developers. The software on Universe is very
stable and seldom causes problems. Or at least that is what the
description says. Multiverse however, is a community maintained
repository and the software is often beta, alpha or worse. It has not
been tested very much and often contains FOR PAY COMMERCIAL software. I
have already ran into several instances in the Multiverse where
installing something tried to uninstall CRITICAL stuff (ie - Something
tried to uninstall the Gnome Desktop and GTK 2 earlier) go figure!
So I would WARN ANYONE to be VERY CAREFUL with the MULTIVERSE, but the
UNIVERSE should be a safe bet for almost everyone.
