Maybe because the RHEL/CentOS 5.5 kernel got several security issues already?


For some of us CentOS users, this is critical.  Especially when there has
been no security updates for CentOS 5 since early January.

It was the right decision to postpone CentOS 6 to get CentOS 5.6 out first.
 But it still have taken a lot longer than what we've been used to.

And for people going to do fresh installs of CentOS, it would be most
likely better to aim directly for CentOS 6 than CentOS 5.5/5.6.  But the
waiting without knowing what to expect when, that is a frustration
amplifier, especially for those having project deadlines.
