My pet peeve is the way new kernels will occasionally change things such that yesterdays eth0 is now eth5. This should NEVER EVER EVER CHANGE! I feel better now. Having to run tcpdump to figure out which interface goes with which network after a kernel update is just plain wrong.
The old model of kernel development had its issues, but it seems like things have swung to a far opposite extreme. Which is a pretty typical over reaction.
I predict another major change sometime in the next two to three years. Hopefully to a system that will stick around for the long haul.
