If I recall, 2.7.2 is preferred for most platforms (the DEC Alpha
being the primary reason for 2.7.2.1); the newer one is actually a bit
LESS stable (again, I'm going from memory, for why we didn't upgrade).

Of course, if you are running Linux on a DEC Alpha, that's another
story :-).

Has anyone tried the Sparc port of Linux?  It's supposed to be
reasonably stable (though its going through some revisions for SMP
support)? 

And most importantly, has anyone run R on either the DEC Alpha or SUN
Sparc ports of Linux?  (I'd be very interested in talking with anyone
who can give a positive answer -- I know that there is Sunos 4.x 
emulation and minimal Solaris 2.x emulation on the Sparc linux port,
but I'd rather not run emulation if possible).

later,
