<snip>lol that's why I said "looks like" that is a hint of uncertainty make sure you "read that more carefully" lol . anyway the premier download seems to be ver 14.04 lts, below is ver .10 plus only supported for 9 months! I would go with the premier product, like I mentioned before probably a driver issue with .10, you probably will have less issues with 14.04 I know I have not had any issues with it and like I said tested video file and dvd movie no issues.Have an Ubuntu day!NeilOn Tue, Jan 20, 2015 at 09:24:31AM -0500, 'Neil Smith' email@example.com [LINUX_Newbies] wrote:

No, he's running the latest release, not a beta. Read more carefully. :)
Ubuntu's numbering system is year and month. 14.04 is from April, 2014,
and the latest is 14.10 from October of last year. However, 14.04 is
what's called LTS, Long Term Support, meaning it will be supported for a
few years--the ones that aren't LTS are only supported for their more
typical life cycle, not sure how long that is.
The first user created is in the sudo group. It allows you to run all
commands as if you were root.
To each his own. However, to call 14.10 a beta is wrong and you know that.
To recommend not running that version in favor of the 14.04.1 LTS version is
a fine idea but you said beta for 14.10. BTW, just because an active version
is less in version number than the current release is at best delusional. That
is how Debian Stale works. However, unless I am wrong, Ubuntu 12.04 is
an LTS release that is still supported by Canonical. Does that mean that the
user should use the 12.04 in lieu of 14.10 or 14.04.1? Not at all. If it was a work
computer and I were to use Ubuntu, I would use 14.04 because of the LTS. For
my personal desktop I would use 14.10 without hesitation.
