Parent article: Is the kernel development process broken?

[[ What i mean by that is, that the old principle of running a stable kernel
by downloading a kernel source tree from a stable branch from
should be restored, and at the same time stop pushing users to the
COMMERCIAL Linux distro builders, for running a stable kernel. This is
evil in itself. There should be a range of v2.6 kernels on
which one can rely on, and build a stable kernel from.

So here my wake-up call to Linus Torvalds, to step in and resume the
development process as we know it, and expect it to be. ]]

--I'm with you 100%. The kernel devels should realize that making things simple for the sysadmins is important. Putting New and Funky Shiznit into the kernel is all FWAG (fine well and good) -- but NOT if it makes life harder for the people who are trying to keep up with a stable kernel on their system!!
