I followed up on the differences. LTS is more stable. On the other hand, the latest non-LTS version can be buggy.

LTS releases are always the best option. Other than stability they provide also security updates/support and major compatibilty for existing installed software. Some non LTS releases provide interesting features. Ubuntu 19.04 included native support for nvidia based drivers for example. IMO it's only worth upgrading when next LTS releases like Ubuntu 20.04 on spring next year.

I'm on the Ubuntu bandwagon aboard. Most recently, I've been playing some FCPB and Sil-Q games on angband.live while on Ubuntu 18.0.4 LTS. I encountered a problem. Maybe this affects some more than others. Specifically, the keypress repeat rate is not nearly as fast on Ubuntu than on Windows 10. This kind of slows down my gameplay, makes it feel laggy. Still playable, though.
