I have installed this on my test machine ... it looks and feels almost identical to redhat 9.0. Infact, since I use apt-get to manitain my main RedHat 9.0 workstation (and point to redhat/9/en/i386 at-stable at-good at-testing for updates) my normal RedHat 9.0 packages are only a couple minor versions behind the severn packages ... for example, Severn uses gcc-3.3-14 and my updated RH9 is using gcc-3.2.2-5 .... Severn is using glibc-2.3.2-57 and my RH9 is glibc-2.3.2-27.9, etc.

This install was fairly stable and painless (I did it as a new install, not an upgrade). I had only minor problems with the Mozilla 1.4 fonts ... and installing vera bitstream fonts corrected this issue.

BTW, using Debian SID is comparable to using the Severn install ... SID's current gcc is 3.3.1-0rc2 and they have a 2.4.21 kernel and a 2.6.0 test kernel....
