Well, on the other hand 2.6.18 was released over 4 months ago (1 quarter
of a year).

So I guess you can look at it either way.

And again, thank you to the CentOS team for this exact tenet! I think we
all know that RedHat is very conservative with their OS, delivering
consistently robust and well tested products. Yes, it can sometimes be
frustrating to not have the latest cutting edge tech, but those who live
on the cutting edge sometimes bleed. I don't like bleeding.
