	I think it depends on what you're using it for.  We use Pro 9.1 for 
workstations, we're a cash generating company, they work like a charm - 
easier to install and maintain than other distros we've tried.  I would think 
that classifies them as "production level".  My experience has been that 
"enterprise" linux editions tend to run with slightly older code than the 
more adventurous leading edge releases like SUSE Pro or Redhat Fedora.  More 
things have been debugged, there's a larger support team available(and you're 
paying for it), and you'll probably get a little more sleep at night knowing 
you're not being a guinea pig for new code.  Personal experience for me, 
however, has been that 9.1 Pro is particularly stable and works wonderfully.
