Obviously there are advantages and disadvantages to using an LTS distro release. That said, when it comes to current software packages, control and speed – rolling releases are a solid option. Good options include Antergos, PCLinuxOS, Linux Mint Debian Edition, among others. In this article, I'll offer a candid view between the two options by examining the core differences between running a rolling release and using an LTS type release distribution. Read more
