We process around 2M mails daily on our mailcluster and i would recommend
upgrading any RH9 box to CORE-1, it simply run much faster. We did some
test on that. Also the ram usage is much better with the kernel supplied
with that distribution.

Its certainly not an alpha release, i am involved with Fedora myself also,
we run a mirror from the start, even before the merger with RedHat. Its
mostly RedHat people doing this and you even might consider it RH 9.1 or
RH 10.

I hope you wont project your experience using it on your labtop how it
would perform on mailservers. And thats, i think, what we are talking
about here.

If you can afford is you should perhaps try RH ES, those are compiled with
a different optimized compiler. So high end either RH ES (Or Whitebox) :)

Just my 2 cents.
