Case in point: RHEL 6 which was released on 2010-11-10 is based on 2.6.32 which was released on 2009-12-03 (and that's unusually quick turnaround for RHEL).
And they're supporting it until 2018 (at least), with backports of new features and bugfixes.
>I think you are mistaken. They would not have enough man power or wide enough configurations available for that. Their "super stable" RHEL kernels would suck big time if they did that.
They employ a lot of kernel developers precisely for that very purpose.
And that's the reason why RedHat is a big company.
