You should check out the release notes. On the whole, I'd say there
isn't much advantage unless you can take advantage of NTPL. Most of the
other enhancements were primarily for desktop users.

The next release should be 2.6-kernel ready, so rather than 9 you may
consider experimenting with Severn or Taroon.  Taroon has much better
support for 64-bit platforms, if you are headed there.
