I've been running Red Hat 9 on my laptop, three web servers, and a
number of workstations running a mix of:

  LabVIEW, Postgres, custom C/C++ apps for control/DAQ/analysis

Some of the installs were fairly recent and others were done about a
week after the original release.  All of the systems have been very
stable.  The only problem that I've experienced that was unique to RH9
was a failure during MatLAB installation -- and that problem has been
identified and fixed by the folks at the MathWorks.

For me, RH9 has been a joy to use.
