Ubuntu stability

A user wonders how well Ubuntu will serve him/her in terms of stability, and gets release recommendations from an expert.

I am thinking about moving my organization over to Ubuntu from Fedora for the ease of use, but it is very important that I have a stable environment our line of work. Will Ubuntu serve us well in stability?
Only time will tell. I use Ubuntu in my day-to-day operations without issue. If you are worried about support, stick with Canonical's Long Term Support (LTS) release distributions. The first one, Dapper Drake, was released in June of 04. The last LTS release was Hardy Heron, and it was released only two months ago, in April of 08.
This was first published in June 2008
