you cannot expect a company to standardize on new OS releases every 6 or 12 months.
I didn't imply that there should be a major update to a critical component, such as the kernel, every 6 to 12 months. That would be insane.
My point of contention is that there is user-space software available now that fixes bugs present in its earlier versions. Those earlier versions are present in RHEL 6 beta, and I do not see Red Hat's development team being able to backport all of the fixes from the newer version. It's simply easier to take the latest version, before Red Hat pours in the concrete and solidifies everything until 2015 / RHEL 7.
