Its important to remember that the normal releases of Ubuntu should 
in-fact be considered very mature Beta releases.  This would include 
releases 8.10 thru 9.10.  the last longterm support (LTS) release 8.04 
is a much more stable and grounded release.  If you cannot tolerate 
having beta quality software on you machine then I would suggest staying 
with the LTS.

Personally 9.10 has been a pretty good release (much better then 8.10 
was) but in my opinion the improvements over 9.04 have not been as 
dramatic as the changes between 7.10 and 8.04.

My servers are running 8.04 LTS and I am indeed waiting with baited 
breath for 10.04 as I now will have LTS support for my Mythbox and the 
HVR-1600/1800 tv cards (which didn't receive support until 8.10).

If stable enough I may just stay with the next LTS on all of my machines.
