I was very active during the 10.2 alpha/beta phase, so I knew it was
going to be a good release. We are between two large projects at work
and I want 10.2 partly to get the latest Subversion and Berkeley DB
(because we are switching from CVS). I would rather have that degree
of freedom than be tied to the longer release cycle of SLES, and my
boss trusts me with that decision. I've been using Linux since '95, so
it's not like we need a lot of hand-holding.

The only downside so far has been bug 219496, one of whose dupes had the
comment "I don't see this as blocker as only smartarray controller are
affected and that's more a typical sles hardware." But there's a
workaround, so we're OK there.
