In addition, kernel security holes force me to upgrade periodically. Right now, I grab a new kernel from kernel.org, copy the .config, check for new options, build, and reboot. Minor pain-in-the-ass, but manageable even if I'm on deadline. [...] Say I'm running 2.6.12 at the time, since keeping up with 2.6 is too much work, and the current kernel is 2.6.41.
If you're up-to-date with the 2.4.x kernel, I see no reason why you wouldn't be up-to-date with the 2.6.x kernel too so this later scenario wouldn't happen to you.
