Which one is more suitable for a server?


Ubuntu 10.04 is a LTS (Long-Term Support) release, and so is better suited for use on a server unless you're certain you have requirements that can only be fulfilled by 10.10.

  • Could you be more specific? What are the "requirements that can only be fulfilled by 10.10"? Any links? – TFM Nov 26 '10 at 6:58
  • Newer software than what's in 10.04. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 26 '10 at 6:59

  • LTS 10.04 was released on April 29 2010 and is supported for 5 years (until 2015-04) – wez Nov 26 '10 at 7:33
  • We don't know the purpose of this server. I read somewhere that PHP in 10.04 is somewhat dated for a LAMP server so there are tutorials to upgrade it to newer packages, but then you lose the advantages of LTS. – Icapan Nov 26 '10 at 10:46

Im always using LTS ubuntu servers, less admin overhead for updates. You can always if you decide upgrade release to 10.10..
