Is it really ? GlibC can be compiled without a lot of cruft when you do not plan to use kernel 2.6.10 or below - and this is how most distributions are compiling it today. But Debian is still using non-2.6 optimized GlibC thus I think it can be called "sticking with 2.4".
Yeah, I'm sure you're right. Most people I've spoken to upgraded to Linux 2.6 not because they wanted more hardware support, better memory management, or improved performance, but because they wanted to recompile their glibc...
