I'm looking at Ubuntu as a choice to linux. 64bit and was wondering what difference there is in both 9.10 to 10.04. I have tried the 10.10 version - but found it was sort of sluggish compared to 10.04 - no idea why. But what is better and has less overhead? Ubuntu 9.10 or 10.04?

10.04.2. It's the best release since 9.04, and before that, 8.04.1. Both 9.10 and 10.10 were not particularly solid releases.

The big difference IMO is that 10.04 has long term support so it will be supported well past this year.
