It's different for Ubuntu (at least that's my opinion).  Dapper is running
2.14.2 or .3 which was the stable at that release and Edgy is running
2.16.1 which is stable at it's release.  Xubuntu is running beta2/rc1 of
XFCE why not keep updating until the final 4.4 is out? Why not release
xubuntu with until 4.4 is out then?  Are they backporting Edgy's
version of XFCE to Dapper then?

I also vote for Dapper update... it is a LTS release after all...  
Personally I may even skip Edgy and update to Feisty in April...  at  
least I do not see any strong  reason to switch to Edgy at the  
moment... Though I guess for Xubuntu it should be more substantial  
improvement than for Ubuntu is general...
