No matter when it happens, though, there is an ongoing trend with every release: Endless discussions about that particular release being better or worse than the previous ones. However, I have noticed that people usually settle down with any release and are happy with it as soon as the corresponding maintenance patches are made available.
So, are those discussions and comparisons a waste of time, a result of the initial lack of stability which is often part of a brand new release? Is there anything about certain releases that made them stand out? I want to know what you think and if you have any favorite Ubuntu release.
