LFS isn't a distro, is a book explaining how a personalized Linux system can be 
buided. You can use the book to build a desktop or a production machine if you 
want (and under your responsability) but that isn't our goal.

The target is user that want know how a current Linux system is build and how 
work. For what you will use the created system is your decission. If you want 
build a very stable server from LFS, use well know stable versions to do it.
