This may be a silly question, but I can't find a specific answer for Linux Mint, so please forgive this aficionado for not knowing what's possibly very obvious.
It is well known that in plain-Ubuntu-land upgrades need to be done sequentially (skipping releases in not possible). But what about in Mint, especially since the "Fresh" upgrade method exists and is the recommended one?
The reason I'm asking is because I have a machine running Mint 11 Katya, and being extremely happy with it I do not want to upgrade just yet to Lisa. This machine serves as a media center, so it's pretty much an appliance: the idea is "set it and forget it". So for stability and support I'd prefer to wait until the next release, which will be LTS.
Hence the original question: Can I skip a release when upgrade time comes?
