I'm totally in agreement with you w.r.t. the above. If you want stability go for something like RHEL/Centos/SLC. My objection was more to that suggestion (or perceived suggestion) that any opinion that is even slightly anti-linux is not allow on this list. I hope it is, as in the long run I believe such opinions on this list are beneficial to linux. Chris
