I'm running Red Hat since Red Hat 3 or so, and then Fedora from 1. On an
rather wide variety of machines (Alpha, SPARC and SPARC64, i386 to i686,
x86_64, single/double/8x processor, ...). All the way as machines in a
computer lab, day-to-day workstation, and servers.

And yes, upgrading used to be a pain, but is is getting easier all the time.

That I learned not to do in the RH 4-5 timeframe, especially not "self
compiled from source". What limited stuff I have locally is packaged as
self-built RPMs that I can update easily.
