Re: long term support release



There is a serious lack of understanding where Linux is, and where
most want it to be in this thread.  A presumptive reboot does not
actually provide any benefit whatsoever, and in fact often exacerbates
situations.  I work in situations where downtime is measured in the
millions of dollars per minute category,  and we have never been able
to accept such requirements as provided by certain vendors such as HP
which mandated monthly downtime to install patches.  I started out
with the presumptive reboot issue.  It was hard enough to get
customers to agree to any modicum of a regular patch cycle.
  By the way,  all processes and modifications to systems in the field
I work, are heavily documented.  The first time I saw a 3B2-80, I
thought to myself what in the hell was that!,  but using known
procedures, I was able to recover what needed to be recovered.
