I have no idea what you are getting at....
You did write in your previous email (and removed it from here)....
"SL is very stable...." So, you are bringing in the concept of
"stability" while saying what I've said is some how untrue. I don't get it.

I didn't say "scientific program". I said: applications for the
http://www.scientificlinux.org/distributions/6x/features/added gives a
list of what is added.
The one "error" I made was thinking these were installed by "default"
when they are only included.
Somehow I think you have it in your mind that I am recommending staying
away from SL. I feel you are attempting to generate controversy or
something for some reason that I can't figure out.
IMO, many people see the words "Fermi Labs" and "CERN" and somehow
impart a mystical power to this spin/distro.
Even if you read the SL website they say.... (With * highlights)
Its primary purpose is to reduce duplicated effort of the labs, and to
have a common install base for the various experimenters.
The base SL distribution is *basically* Enterprise Linux, recompiled
Our main goal for the base distribution is to have *everything
compatible with Enterprise*, with only a few *minor additions or
changes*. Examples of items that were added are Alpine, and OpenAFS.
Because the main goal of Scientific Linux is to have everything
compatible with Enterprise, we have kept our modifications to a minimum.
But we have made changes. *The majority of the changes are not seen, or
SL is a fine distribution. I've never said otherwise.
I don't see any point in continuing. I feel you are being argumentative
for the sake of arguing.
