I'm also not a big fan... But if you run proprietary software it's
usually supported under specific distributions. And the vendor will hit
that bug and will not support that distro until they have fixed the code.

Also, as I already mentioned. You don't get EL6 (or whatever), copy your
software to the new machine and take it into production... You'll
usually test your software first, don't you?
