Practically, though, it's always been like this. In the 2.2 series, I had deep fear of upgrading a kernel up until around 2.2.8, and in 2.4 all the way up to 2.4.16 or 2.4.18 somewhere. Just think of it as part of Linux's charm.

If you install a random kernel on random hardware you have to be prepared for it to break.
