Ubuntu in particular and linux in general  release versions are pretty much the opposite of Windows release versions.  IOW,   you can start with an earlier version and upgrade it almost painlessly* to current and future versions.  The six months releases  are to try out new features, and what proves stable and desired makes it into the long term (2 year) support release.

These are obsolete so don’t bother:
1242 – Ubuntu Oneiric 11.10 Server 64-bit 20111212 (deprecated)
5575 – Fedora 16 Server 64-bit 20120404 (deprecated)
6340 – BitNami WebPack 1.1-1 Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit – Partner Image (deprecated)
9127 – ActiveState Stackato v1.2.5 – Partner Image (deprecated)
