2.4.9-12 is the latest kernel for 7.1 and 7.2
It is 2.2.19 for 6.2 and 7.0

They should have. Otherwise you are running a insecure box. And if a vendor 
can't make a decent driver release within a few days it is not worth it.

A lot of linux boxes hang on something called the internet where getting 
the door nailed shut should be done as fast as possible.

The honeynet project noted that a standard linux box without updates was 
rooted within 5 minutes (!) after installation. This was without even 
advertising the box or using it for production.


Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
