        Hummm. Fair enough, then maybe Red Hat 5.2 would be a good
comparision. ( I think it's 5.2 that's got the Linux 2.2 kernel, to be
honest my actuall "work" only involves FreeBSD, so any Linux stuff is
pretty much outside of my normal day, although interesting none the less )

        I was under the impression that the general Linux community felt
that the 2.2 kernel was the new stable. I always thought it was neat how
the new Linux 2.2 kernel and the new FreeBSD 3 came out around the same
time, and both seemed to make big jumps in their use of things like smp.
