Is anyone else noticing a progressively less stable OS with the LTS offering of Ubuntu 12.4?
I have generally stuck with LTS (Long term support) distributions of Ubuntu, but I may need to upgrade away from 12.4 sooner rather than later.
I don't have anything on this machine that hasn't come from the Ubuntu software centre, and still as software updates are applied I find the system becoming less and less stable.
Its worth pointing out I do run the KDE desktop environment. I have been running a mix of Ubuntu (Gnome) and KDE since 9.04 and until now I have had no issues.
My reason for running Ubuntu then installing KDE is simply that the release of Ubuntu generally contains a lot more in the way of tools as opposed to a vanilla install of Kubuntu.
Currently I am seeing a number of system crashes when using multiple apps or sometimes even multiple windows. Even opening a file browser and then opening a file can be enough to trigger a kernel panic and throw the system back to console.
