Well if you use Ubuntu's LTS [long term support] OS you upgrade the
OS every two years.  There is a lot of changes in LO over even a
year's worth of time, let alone two.
But packages in a repository get updated during those years, you don't
just stay on the latest version at the time of the LTS release. At
least, it works this way for other software, I'm rather certain that it
does for LO too.

so sounds like you should look into a 'rolling release' like LMDE or
Linux Mint Debian Edition or Manjaro.
My personal favourite rolling release distro is Arch Linux. It is
simple and clean, but it is more work to set up. That extra work is
part of the point of Arch: it keeps things clean and lean, and means
that you get to know your system better.


yeah, I forgot to mention Arch, the archbishop of rolling releases.

I've never tried it; not sure how much better I need to know my system.

plus I use the Trinity Desktop (TDE) which is a nice hold-over from KDE3 and I simply don't know if it can be set up in Arch or not. maybe will look into it when I have another spell of the romance of getting to know my system. in fact the one I'm writing from now is way overdue for an overhaul, way over.
