Let me ask some questions:
- How many thousand people can't continue working if the server isn't
- How many million dollar does the customer lose every day the server is

These are interesting questions, but not really applicable. I've never
seen a corporate enviornment where an upstream or outside distribution
is deployed without being tested internally first. I don't think it's
something that should be taken into account in the release process.
Companies have internal methods for deployment that double check and
verify a distribution before it is used.
There are reasons why companies pay several thousand dollars licence
fees for every computer they run the enterprise version of some
distribution on. E.g. RedHat supports each version of their enterprice
edition for seven years.
I didn't know they had pledged to do that. Interesting.
How many days does it take in the US until a bank is bankrupt after a
critical part of their computer infrastructure is broken?
I don't know. Maybe we should run a test :)
