I prefer LTS because I don't like to go through the hassle, risk and expense of upgrading every 6 months.
My computer is a work tool, not a hobby, and the less time I spend on getting it configured
to my liking is more time I can spend on actual revenue producing work. I can also plan my hardware upgrades
to coincide with new LTS releases, so I have a two year period during which I don't have to worry
about my tools at all. One of the reasons I migrated from Windows to linux was because those
pricks at MS kept changing things without my having any choice in the matter. I know you didn't ask me,
but I thought I'd tell you anyway.
