12 -- Fedora 8 is still pretty good and only now you would have 
to switch to F10. Actually, I know about many people who skipped 
F9 completely, and I don't blame them.

Cool. Of course, you would have to have to familiarize with the 
new environment, but I guess you know that.

I would have a question about Ubuntu LTS. What are your 
experience with it? How much they really maintain it or is it (as 
I suspect; note, I have on experience with it, so I am not 
claiming anything) just that they throw LTS label on one of their 
releases and fix security issues only?

Best,

Matěj
