Do I have a deja-vu here? I recall to have a similar discussion some
- short answer: because it works
- long answer: I only find LTS releases acceptable.
However 12.04, a natural choice, suffers from bug which concerns �xpdf�
and is not acceptable for me.
Please enjoy yourself when reading the depressing story in:
14.04 would be a candidate but I have to test its Trinity
 which includes useful, but no longer maintained packages such a
xmms, or mgdiff or even matlab version 2008. Besides this I have to
say that some authors of free or non-free software tend to violate
the 11th commitment: thou shalt not break backwards compatibility.
 but I have to see whether it will support all my old hardware. I am
trapped with old thinkpad models since Lenovo deliberately replaced
its best feature: its keyboard by a far inferior one.
