One nice thing about Ubuntu is that they even give you access to future kernel versions through what they call HWE. In short, I can run a 14.04 LTS kernel on a 12.04 server, so that I'm able to use modern hardware and take advantage of software that uses features of Linux that are actively worked on (like LXC) on an older software stack.
