I'm in a similar position...potato/woody for production servers, my own
desktops run sid. I'm finding lots of nice things about RH 7.2, though,
and as I bounce stuff off Mike Harris, who maintains the X packages,
I've found RH does have its share of "cool things."
Generally the packages I "care about most" hit auric/incoming within
hours of their upstream update.
