Well put. Most of us in charge of ISP's, OSP's etc, wont touch it, because it has given many people in many companies, in many places around the world, many headaches, which I guess is why most DC's I've known to run RH, have all but 1 dumped it in moves to either Slackware or Debian, and if the suggestion made by someone that Debian is going the same way, then they will see an exodus as well going by trends on whats discussed at BBQ's on Saturday afternoos, they need to remember, senior network managers/engineers from competing networks in same cities tend to all know each other, and we all have many get-togethers, it only takes one person to mention a problem with a certain bit of software, even if just as a passing comment, it tends to stay in our minds, we will never make more work for ourselves than we already have.
