Well, our news server (Diablo, #threehundredsomething in the top1000)
crashed regulary with all the 2.0.x kernels but with the later 2.0.34pre
kernels it has been rock-stable. It has now been running 2.0.34pre16
since it was out, as have most of our other servers. And 2.0.34-release
is just 2.0.34pre16. I'd say it's _more_ stable then any other 2.0.x kernel.
