I certainly didn't say Grid Engine is buggy, at least not in comparison. 
But there are bugs, and tough ones on top. A lot has been fixed for u5 
and then 80 more for Univa Grid Engine 8.0.0. There are still bugs, of 
course, or performance restricting issues. An if you run a production 
environment on which your users depend then having not only a number to 
call but also the deep-level experts behind that number does not sound 
like such a bad idea, if you ask me.

You also may forgive me if I point out that the relative stability you 
are experiencing is because of a certain group of people who stood 
behind the product for all those years. So ...
