Given that base 2.6 kernels are shipped by Linus with known unfixed
security holes anyone trying to use them really should be doing some
careful thinking. In truth no 2.6 released kernel is suitable for
anything but beta testing until you add a few patches anyway....
I still think the 2.6 model works well because its making very good
progress and then others are doing testing and quality management on it.
Linus is doing the stuff he is good at and other people are doing the
stuff he doesn't.
