fairly often, its due to some perceived vendor requirements on the part
of operations people. Or, the server was purchased with a RHEL license,
but it wasn't renewed. I have to work with operations people in
overseas manufacturing plants, who are _extremely_ conservative about
applying updates. if its not broken, they won't fix it. as most of
these systems are single function (run a java based application suite
used for factory floor message routing, or run an
oracle/postgres/whatever database along with some java stuff that front
ends for the database), most updates have nothing to do with the mission.
