As most of us know that Ubuntu releases an LTS release that provides support for 5 years. That means once you install an LTS release that’s going to provide you support for complete five years without any problem. Plus you get new features whenever you have a new LTS release.If you’ve been following Ubuntu releases for quiet some time then you probably already know that Ubuntu comes with some but interesting features, changes, and improvements with the latest release. Each newer LTS release is more stable, secure and powerful than the last one. Sometimes users complain about the lack of new stuff in the latest release. What I suggest is that even if you don’t find any new features in the latest release, you must upgrade because the new release always fixes several bugs and issues. So it’s always good to go for the newer one.
