Should I install ROS noetic or kinetic (January 2021)

I am just getting started with ROS and I plan on using realsense cameras with rtabmap. is noetic stable and well documented for me to use? I think this project will take a while but Im just not sure if its worth using noetic yet. I will be starting from a fresh computer and i would like long term support and upgradeability but also the least bugs and largest community. So what version should i go with?

Just going off google trends it looks like melodic is still very popular and ill guess it will be that way for at least another 18 months so i will stick with melodic.
