Noob Release Question
#1
After researching distributions, I have decided to use Ubuntu Mate. My question is would it be better to use 18.04.3 or 19.04?  
Hardware:
Lenovo B570, B950 Pentium (2.1ghz, 2c/2t), 8gb DDR3L 1600(2x4), 250gb SSD.

It will be a stand alone system as I have my W10 on a separate machine. Any and all comments, suggestions, tips and tricks will be appreciated.  Decades ago used RedHat before I got Windosed with 3.1/11 through w10 19.03. So basically starting fresh.
LinuxMint 19.2 (Cinnamon)
Lenovo B570
Intel Pentium B950
circa 2009

IMO 18.04.3.  19.04 only lasts for nine months.  I personally recommend most people, especially when new to Linux, stick to LTS releases.
