I don't have opinions, everybody knows that.
There are a couple of interesting data points for those who say that enterprises need these frozen-version-number kernels, though.
- The "enterprise real time" distributions have always stuck much closer to mainline, seemingly with no ill effect.
- I've been at talks by representatives of Credit Suisse and NASDAQ OMX, both of which probably qualify as "enterprises." Both run their operations on mainline kernels.
One hears stories of other "enterprises" based on Gentoo. There do seem to be ways to make this work...
