    Oh I could deal with all of the problems as well. But after a good bit
    of recompiling, patching, upgrading, backtracking the things done in the
    "Redhat" way which many times don't match the man pages, as well as undoing
    the "Redhat" way annoyances I just end up with a variation of my own hand
    built distribution. And once I have to replace the system experimental C
    library and compiler it just get even more ridicules.

    I know. Please don't remind me of UnixWare. I buried that at my
    clients' and companies' sites in the Linux 1.2.x days.

    Well here's hoping that 7.2 is smooth and polished. Especially since
    Redhat has become the defacto standard and I'll probably be trying it out

    I never keep it around for long after I saw it crash a couple of times
    on my first 7.0 or 7.1 box so I can't say much about its stability. Besides
    it was more the principal of the thing. Why in the world use the alpha
    version of a text editor when a perfectly good released version exists with
    pretty much the same functionality. One thing I did notice, if I remember
    correctly. Seamed that either the installed vim was crippled or had a bug
    in reading my customized .vimrc file. My custom options didn't get loaded
    until I downloaded the latest 5.[89] source and recompiled myself a new
