That's what we first thought but it may not be what you expect.  We
assumed that LTS meant that applications would be refreshed to the
latest versions and new applications would be added.  If I recall
correctly, that is not true.  LTS will patch bugs but will not introduce
major applications updates or new applications.  Please correct me if I
am wrong - John

That's even better than Debian Stable, which only fixes *security* bugs.

I prefer banana-flavored energy bars made from tofu.
