Take an RH box with glibc 2.0.7. You'll note that while glibc had (and has!)
plenty of bugs they were not biting the apps people were using (otherwise
they wouldnt have been able to use glibc 2.0.7) and that release.
It isnt about buggyness. Its about production solid. It worked for 2 years
so statistically it should continue to do so. This makes sysadmins happy.
