7.2 is close, (or so it seems)..
If I was planning an upgrade, I'd be asking the question... 6.2 / 7.1 or
wait for 7.2
My decision would be based on where 7.2 is going... and if that suits my
I hate getting around to doing an upgrade on something application,
and then finding out the following morning that a new version has
just been released.
Moving to 7.1 or 6.2 and hearing two days later that 7.2 is out and
has better support for all the hardware you have is a real pain..

I've a server upgrade to do (well actually, 4 of them), and while I run
on my laptop, I use Redhat on my servers...
I'm holding off the upgrade until 7.2 is out, and then I'll jump first with

sheep... Someone in Kabul last week was at a Taliban dinner, and
was heard to comment on the food 'his lamb is bad', so the dept
see a large untapped market with quality Irish lamb.
