I think people are misunderstanding the term "Long Term Support".

Lots of recent posts with issues after upgrading to Precise. I'm not against that, but it usually comes along with something similar to "WTF Canonical, this is an LTS?!11?!"

LTS releases don't mean 'completely stable from day 1'. It means long term support, as in, bugs and stability issues get fixed in this release longer than other releases. There's always going to be bugs at release, that's just how software works.

Overall though, I'd say that Canonical has done an amazing job with Precise and it's only going to get better from here. We just need to be a bit patient in order for the support part to kick in.
