Never a dumb question!

We're running 9.04 right now which is about three years old. It's no longer supported, so it puts us in a bind and makes it hard to upgrade and receive security updates, etc. Canonical (the folks behind Ubuntu) have structured things such that the LTS releases (8.04, 10.04, 12.04, etc) are supported for five years -- but the non-LTS releases are only supported for two years.

Ideally, we should be on an LTS version or we should commit to upgrading releases more often than we do.
