For a production environment which kernel. 2.4 or 2.6?

Which one would you use? I get this impression that 2.4 seems to be a much more mature kernel (because of it's age) than 2.6.

Then again one can argue that an older version of 2.6 will provide best of both worlds: a new kernel + a more mature kernel than the latest and greatest release of the 2.6 version kernels.

I am talking about server side in specific.
There are custom made kernel trees out there but frankly if I dont test them my self, I do not trust them. I might as well make my own custom kernel tree (which I am seriously thinking about it).


PS: I couldnt find a more suitable forum to post this, that is why I chose General Applications. I think, and that is only my oppinion, that a Kernel forum would be very handy, provided though that people will show interest in tweaking and experimenting with the kernel (which I think it is the most fun part of using Linux) :D
