5.1-RELEASE is less stable than 4.8-RELEASE.

Particularly, you may have to do some tweaking
to get the kernel booting on install and thereafter.

However, stability is comparable between the two
after everything is working, and 5.1-RELEASE has
some pretty slick new features.

I'd go with 4.8-RELEASE as a beginner though.
