That's good to hear, I could never get fedora to run reliably on my home
pcs. Are those corporate servers? I don't have the balls for that. Had good
luck with centos servers, and ubuntu server non essential boxes, had great
luck so far.

I might have to give fedora another shot. I had clock skew issues on an old
laptop and gave up on it

I always rebuild boxes on new releases (moving to VMware anyways, some
boxes had software raid. (Blah)) had way too many major updates bite me.
