Note that 2.6.32 has been designated a LTS (Long Term Support) kernel
by the powers that be.

So that kernel would be good one to focus training resources on.  It
will likely be supported for several years by Redhat, Suse, Canonical,
etc.  Thus testing all the LDD3 examples with it would be very

ie. It is the basis of SLES 11.1 SP1, etc. so these firms are
contractually obligated to support a LTS kernel for years.  To lighten
the load, they got together and chose the 2.6.32 kernel as one they
would support together.  I think this is the first time they have
tried this approach.  I suspect they will do it again a couple years
from now.
