Ubuntu is a consistent work in progress.   After every major release 
they take the code base and extend it with certain goals.  There are 2 
major releases a year each with goals to meet.

The time between releases has daily (sometimes twice a day) builds with 
changes.  We test the changes and submit problems we have.

There are no betas in the conventional sense.   Just rolling builds.

12.10 is going to be released in a number of weeks.  So if there is an 
issue with API from GTK3 not playing with GTK2 nice someone (from 
lazarus) should file a report so when 12.10 comes out - Lazarus 1.1 will 
compile and work as Lazarus users need.

 From a business standpoint, imo, Lazarus is the best thing for Linux, 
so targeting the best distro for maximum quality is very wise.  It is 
acceptable if some distros don't work well - but it is imperative that 
the top distros are supported with quality.

Ubuntu is the high-end linux distro - as it compares to OSX and Windows 
7.  Meaning graphics, video performance, and bloat-ware installed.  If 
comparing linux distros via a minimalist "lens" the evaluation result 
may be different.  But for industry comparisons - bloated desktops - it 
is superior.
