    Observations based on Roswell 2 and identical Abit BP6's: faster disk
    I/O and kernel builds (same options), smoother X11 performance (SVGA),
    higher LAN network I/O (switched LNE100TX) under heavy loads, and, none
    of the recent latency or VM issues. As for features, I don't need any
    new feature specific to 2.4.

    I see your point but everything since 2.2.19p2 been stable for my NFS
    and app server testing needs as well as primary desktop machine.
