Red Hat Linux .0-releases have always been.. well... LOUSY.
This is a bit of folk wisdom which may have had some justification in the past - in any event, we found that 8.0 has been rock solid on our servers - once we replaced the broken rpm and openssh packages.
Sorry guys, you've done an excellent job all these years, but it's a _well known_ fact that you never ever run .0-releases. Almost everyone I know (including all the customers the company I'm working for is operating) will have a ..0-release running on a test system, but never ever run it on a workstation or server. NEVER servers.
We're not bound by such rules - we evaluate OS releases on their merits, and choose whether or not to deploy them based on their worthiness, not on the version number -
In any case it seems superstitious to have a good opinion of a release that you thought would be called 8.1, but to then turn against it after finding that it will be called version 9.
Sounds like configuration issues -And for workstation use.. sorry, but Phoebe is too way sluggish.. I mean, 10 seconds to launch a gnome terminal with just 3 mozillas and 4 terminals running on a 1,6GHz machine? come on...
Phobe3 gnome desktop is quite snappy here on a compaq presario (PII-500)
