Clearly it is not so easy for new people to figure it out otherwise
we wouldn't keep on having to answer this same question from so
many new users.

So you answer them and they will know, this is how support works.

This works for support *after* they have gotten the software, this
should *never* be the case for people who want to download the
software, that choice should *always* be pretty obvious.

If I go to a page to download some software I want, and can't figure
out which version I should use, or at least have some sort of idea
about the choice being made, I consider just giving up on the software.
I'm sure most people are the same.

Yes, but you keep thinking on the same model: stable vs unstable when
both are stable :) change your mind by thinking older in time = more
bugfixes, newer in time = more features but more bugs.
But you're getting the very definition of stable wrong:

more bugs = less stable

So this really *is* a debate about stable vs unstable. That's not to say
that the younger product is *unstable*, but it does mean that the older
product is *more stable*.
