Take a look at the differences in linux-2.2.x and linux-2.3.x.

linux-2.3.x is was a h*ll of a lot more "actively maintained".

But nobody really considers that to be an argument for RedHat (or anybody
else) to installa 2.3.x kernel by default. Sure, most distributions have a
"hacker kernel", but it's NOT installed by default, and it is clearly
marked as experimental.

Your arguments make no sense.

The compiler is often _more_ important to system stability than the
kernel. A "real release" implies that it at least had testing, and that
people know what the problem spots tend to be.

Note that the "know what the problem spots tend to be" is important.

Good. Maybe you'd make it clearer to everybody who installed from your
CD's that they had better upgrade. Pronto.
