If you're using a proprietary video driver it might wreck automatic
updating of it. That would become a concern. What kernel is installed on
11.04? Just type uname -r in a terminal window.
I'm in your corner, 10.4 is a nice safe place to be right now, IMHO. I
installed 10.10 on our office machine and it seems nice and safe as
well. But, at home, I'm a coward and prefer the LTS release, installing
it several months after release to be sure it's shaken out well. Fedora
cured me from stepping any where near the "cutting edge".
