Do I have a deja-vu here? I recall to have a similar discussion some
time ago.

    -  short answer: because it works[1]

    -  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[2] but I have to test its Trinity
      compatibility still.

[1]  which includes useful, but no longer maintained packages such a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.

[2]  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.
