As the other poster said... I have put a great deal of money (thousands of dollars) into Linux and ancillary products over the years. Far, far more than I've spent on Microsoft products. Part of that money has gone to pay kernel devs at places like Red Hat, and likely has indirectly resulted in the creation of Linux-related jobs. Some of that money goes to LWN.
What I'm asking for here benefits all of us... you, me, AND the kernel devs. Stability and security are what got Linux to this point, to where Linux experience is a good thing to have on a resume, to where you can get good jobs knowing only Linux.
That will not remain true if the fundamental strengths of Linux are lost in a chase for 'development speed', which benefits primarily the developers, and not so much the Rest of World.
