FWIW, I DO have the knowledge...

Your first statement is not true... at least, not in the sense of
"necessarily."  The effort is made to test the hell out of EVERY
Ubuntu release and hopefully send the best thing out the door that's
possible.  Sometimes this is successful, sometimes not so much, but
it's always a best effort balancing act.

LTS means exactly what you thought it meant.  Long Term Support.  LTS
releases don't change much between point releases (e.g. the upcoming
10.04.1) and get updates for a lot longer than the regular releases.
However, the QA process is the same for both.
