Nothing Linus or anyone else working on 2.6 could have done would have made proprietary drivers stop being third rate.
Except not changing the internal interfaces every other week...
the mount point for detected media is configurable by your
distribution or by you
Surely. The problem is that I've never found where it could be configured. Also I used to have a /dev/dvd link that was lost somewhere between upgrading from Gutsy to Hardy (which was a bad decision). I have a feeling that distributions tend to make first time installation working fine, but they still have problems with upgrades. I'm pretty sure that upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista is also quite painful, but while Windows users need to update only every 3-4 years, Linux users have to update much more often.
all your hardware was really well supported in 2.4 then you'll notice less improvement from 2.6
Actually 2.4 supported my hardware at that time better than 2.6 supports my hardware now. And it's not just graphics card - xawtv used to be able to control the volume, but not it just doesn't work. It's annoying enough that I'm using Windows more and more at home.
