Problems with Ubuntu 14.04

I have been using Ubuntu 14.04 for some time, but it still seems to be 
unstable. Once in a while the keyboard will become unresponsive. In the 
most extreme case not even the power button will respond and I have to 
pull the plug. The most annoying problem is that it is still using a 
buggy version of brltty based on brltty 5.0. I have asked that it be 
updated to 5.1 and filed a bug on Launchpad, but nothing has been done. 

I've heard of 14.1, called "Trusty". Is this stable? Does it have a good 
version of brltty?
