I'd be very curious to hear about what real life problems people have observed. The advice is mention so often here, without any proof (at least thats my impression). Does it run slow? Does product xy behave strange? Does it crash? We have some well loaded (2.8.x ZEO setup) servers up and running, using the standard python install that comes with fedora 3 (or their official updates), and that seems not to have any obvious disadvantages (beside the fact, that they still offer 2.3.4 only).
