5 The main reason I suggested LTS is because that, *when* you decide to do
6 a @world update, you will get the latest LTS of the same main version
7 you're already using. For example you'll go from 5.15.20 to 5.15.78. And
8 that means you won't have to bother with an array of endless "make
9 oldconfig" questions. There'll be like one or two at most, which is
10 trivial to deal with.
12 I've been using LTS kernels for years now, and I never looked back.
13 "make oldconfig" usually doesn't say anything, making it a ridiculously
14 fast and no-brainer update, and yet I get the latest bugfixes and
15 security fixes.
17 It just works :-)
