Do I use new kernels or stick to the old one?

Asked By 70 points N/A Posted on -

Which kernel should I use? With the recent release of the 3.13 version of the kernel, I have been thinking should I install the new one or stay with the old one that is sometimes not stable. Most of my friends have installed the new version of the kernel and some of them has seen improvement in their AMD hybrid graphic, while some complain of system crashes. Please help!
