    Ubuntu comes out twice a year, in April (.04) and October (.10). Normal issues have shorter support, therefore shorter life, but some issues are LTS (Long Term Support) which have longer support, therefore longer life. The last LTS was 14.04 (2014 April)
  3. Latest LTS Release: 14.04 Trusty
    Latest Non-LTS Release: 14.10 Trusty
    Latest Alpha Build (for those wishing to live on the bleeding edge): Ubuntu Vivid Daily

    Please do your own research. All of your questions have either been already answered or are easily discoverable. For example have you tried looking at the Ubuntu website?

    @darrendazzler It is better to start a new thread, rather than hi-jack somebody else's...

    The biggest difference between Linux Mint and Ubuntu is that Linux Mint comes with the non-free codecs installed. With Ubuntu you have to add the non-free codecs yourself.

    You do this with the command:
    It's that hard! :rolleyes:
