"How long should the community have to care about a distro after the creators of it have abandoned it?"
I'm amazed the lwn editors let this FUD pass - Fedora Core 3 is not an "abandonned" distro, it's still supported by the Fedora Legacy project, and will probably be till Fedora Core 7 Test 2 is released
(I must admit being faintly amused by the yet-to-be-released slackware part)
"New kernels would always come with a version of udev that worked, and some of these compatibility problems would go away"
That would make multibooting between old safe kernels and new experimental ones incredibly difficult.
