I couldn't agree more. But someone made up this concept of "rock
solid" and "Enterprise ready". To make things more confusing there are
two versions on the download page that are "Enterprise ready" and
there isn't anyone who can say which are the differences and which one
should companies adopt...

The reason for my post is that family 3.3 will no longer be updated
and the ONLY version this Community is "selling" as "Enterprise ready"
will be version 3.4.5

Currently there are two "rock solid" versions. And you can see from
the comments at the forum that many people (and companies) were
sticking with version 3.3.x just to be on the safe side (maybe that is
why there are not more bug reports for 3.4.4?)

I'm not in panic. I was just sharing my concern. If you guys aren't
worried why should I be?
