http://askubuntu.com – I will be talking soon about the advantages of upgrading or installing a newer release of Ubuntu instead of sticking to an older version. A behavior I tend to attribute to Windows users where they stick to an older version of Windows for a long time (Try to picture somebody staying with Ubuntu 5.10 up until now and asking why it has X problem with it) So what advantages does an end user get when upgrading or installing a newer version or the latest version of Ubuntu and why is something important to be always up to date in the Ubuntu/Linux world.
