Linux lesson for newbies: Don't install a linux distro within 3 months of release
Yesterday I learnt a lesson, now I would not upgrade my linux distro within 3-4 months of release. Normally a new release would have definitely scores of bugs and things get fixed within 3-4 months. Ubuntu community would have by that time addressed all the common problems once can face while installation and running. Therefore, it makes more sense to install a somewhat "matured" distro.
