	Actually,  it's not hard to download the packages and install from  
source.  (./configure ; make ; make install isn't much harder than "yum  
install" and it's more likely to work.)

	However,  the whole reason I prefer Linux over Solaris is that Linux  
comes with a good userspace,  not because the Linux kernel is all that  
good.  (The big thing Linux has going for it is driver support.)  As the  
things that I expect to be "just there" start to disappear,  the  
advantages of sticking with Linux go away.
