We'll go up to 6, or, more likely, 6.1, but we've just got a couple of
test machines running RHEL 6 and 6.1; upgrading to that will be a Big Deal
- there's some apps that are, let us be polite, seem to be pretty damn
fragile.... And most of our researchers and affiliates (or whatever the
right name for the developers is) have CentOS workstations, though
development's done on the servers.

And I'm going to have to worry about NVidia cards, like mine, that need
the -173 proprietary driver....
