I thought I'd throw in my .02.

Although I wouldn't mind seeing the 2.4 kernel become the default, 
I've learned to really like the slow/steady/safe development pace 
taken by Owl.  Heck, even current is extremely stable in my 
experience.  I _really_ like that security comes before features.

I do think 2.4 has some nice firewalling/networking features that 2.2 
lacks, but I can live with 2.2 for awhile if it means Owl continues to 
stay as stable and reliable as it has been.
