Eh? RHEL is exactly the same. In fact it's extremely rare for *any*
base software to be updated apart from security updates in RHEL (and
by definition CentOS).

The big benefit of Ubuntu is that if you don't want the super-stable
version you can just roll-up every 6 months to the latest version of
everything. If you want bleeding-edge you can use Gentoo, and kiss
your evenings goodbye ;-)
