The 2.2 kernel (and the 2.0 kernel) are still maintained, though
they are not updated a quickly in most cases.  I should think that
2.4 will be available for a long time yet.

This is pretty random, a lot of people like to wait until at least
.10 - though it is personal test.  I believe that is has been
stated that 2.6 is already more stable than 2.4, but that is just
opinion for the most part.  When to run it: when you need or want
something it has.
