See that is funny. Since new releases come out regularly, no one would
know if asterisk was stable enough to last past a any new release if
they staid perfectly on top of the releases. Basically I installed these
machines and only upgraded them when there was some feature I needed.
After that there hasn't been a need to upgrade.

If some people hadn't run the linux kernel for more than the time it
took for a major release cycle, than Linus wouldn't have had certain
bugs brought to his attention. Specifically I have several machines that
are having problems with the jiffie loop. But had I upgraded the kernels
at every release, I wouldn't have had the uptime to have found that out.
