For Zimbra, yes.
But honestly: how on earth would they be able to guarantee that it's
working correctly in any other meaningful way?
Would you like to do support for your product that relies on a dozen
or more external other products (that aren't maintained in most
Enterprise Linux distributions anyway) when any of the vendors you
support the product on can introduce a patch anyday that changes some
stuff only you need in your software - and now you have customers all
over the world phoning you why your P-O-S-software stopped working out-
They have to maintain their own releases.

There's a new release every couple of months.
It's not that bad. If there is some serious problem, they provide
extra hotfixes, too.
It's (well, supposed to be) a turnkey-product.
At least, the pay-version is.

You can still use it.
Just not on the Zimbra-server.
I'm actually glad they don't have so many "use this instead of that"
Just more stuff that could go wrong and that nobody QAs anyway.
