Yes, but in many cases that's good enough.  You can buy four of them
if you like and have three as warm standby machines, and still pay less
than "enterprise" prices.

Actually, except for the kernel, it's quite up-to-date.  All the
important software is installed from upstream sources; I long ago
gave up on RPM for that.  (When we finally do get around to building
a new, up-to-date machine, it'll probably be Debian, which is a lot
easier to keep up-to-date than RH, I think.)

David.
