Hi Friends,

I am just curious to know whether there is need to upgrade the kernel
which comes with RedHat 7.2 distribution i.e. 2.4.7-10? I observer that
lot of people are upgrading the kernels on their servers.

Are there some significant patches in new kernel releases or people
are just trying to stay updated? I would also like to upgrade to new
kernel if it brings value to my servers. Also please guide which version
is the most stable and robust?
