"Newest is not always best. Take the Ubuntu 10.10 release that came out on October 10th. Ubuntu users who are happy with their current release may want to hold off before taking the plunge.

"The Ubuntu 10.04 release was very solid, with a lot of major improvements that made it a no-brainer for an upgrade. That, plus the fact that it's a Long Term Support (LTS) release, which is the right time to grab an upgrade for almost all users. The 10.10 "Maverick" release brings some improvements over 10.04, but they're so minor that it's probably not worth making the change.

"I've been running 10.10 betas and the RC for weeks, and had been running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on a few machines before that. Honestly, it's hard to see much difference between the two. Plus several points for consistency, but that doesn't add up to rushing to upgrade at the first opportunity."
