What's The Difference Between Stable, Snapshot, And Nightly?

Generally, the nightly builds, while extremely experimental and considered bleeding-edge, tend to be relatively stable and mostly bug-free. Many people use the nightlies as their so-called daily-driver, meaning that any bugs that they may have aren't so severe that they want to switch to a different version. For my Nexus 4, as soon as I got it I switched to a nightly build and haven't had any bugs pop up.
Also, all builds are full builds, so if you switch to a nightly, you aren't required to flash every single nightly. You can do it as you see fit. I've been known sometimes to flash a build every day, but then I've gone a month in between updating. Just grab the latest version you want to flash and flash that one.

Thanks for the reply! I have the Galaxy S3 and have been using 10.1-20130313-Nightly-d2tmo CyanogenMod version. It's only been about a week that I've been using this Nightly version and it's been a bit frustrating. My music skips like crazy, my Bluetooth does not work properly, I can never use 4g, my phone freezes sometimes when I make calls, text notifications won't work with the text messaging that's built into the ROM (so I use Handcent instead), the phone gets really glitchy when I open up a video or turn it to landscape, S Beam does not work, and if I actually sit for a few more minutes I can come up with a few more issues that I've experienced within the last week, but that's besides the point.
So, I was wondering what you would recommend for me. I simply want to use something that will not be so glitchy. The stock ROM is too boring and simple. That's why I wanted something like CyanogenMod.
Is the Stable and M Builds seem almost the same except when they're updated and offered to the public... Can you explain a little more on the difference between the two? I'm just trying to figure out which one best suits me...

But, between the M and stable releases... originally, CyanogenMod would work for months towards getting a stable build out. But during all this time, there was no bug reports allowed. M releases are basically designed for something a bit more stable than nightlies, that allow bug reports, but aren't the intended finished product.

Aww man...see, now that I went through phone hell with my S3, I know exactly what you're talking about now lol. Thanks dude, you've helped me out a ton. It crossed my mind about 3-4 times that I should just pay $130 and have them send me another phone. Thanks!
