While I have only found a couple of specific bugs myself, my overall feeling is that 2.6 is not as stable as 2.4 was. When we upgraded from the 2.6.7 to 2.6.9 although it fixed some problems, we also had new problems we didn't have before. I can't help but think that part of the problem is doing development in the stable build. For one of the applications I have been working on it would have been much better to not have to deal with new features and major changes to subsystems everytime we upgrade.
