>> A carefully designed source API

I still see too much churn in the drivers and kernel to lock down an API. I do not want to stagnate Linux drivers yet. I do that too much at work. True, I am looking from a birds eye view, not being a driver writer for Linux, just a home user. I've worked in the embedded world for 30 years where hardware is "stable" and supported for 10 years or more.
