Linux Andrew Morton, the lead maintainer of the Linux production kernel, is worried that an increasing number of defects are appearing in the 2.6 kernel and is considering drastic action to resolve it. "I believe the 2.6 kernel is slowly getting buggier. It seems we're adding bugs at a higher rate than we're fixing them," Morton said, in a talk at the LinuxTag conference in Wiesbaden, Germany, on Friday.

Thumbs up for Linux devs

Everything Morton said was `right on the button'. Recognizing a problem as soon as possible is 50% of solving it in the optimum way and minimize it's impacts. This kernel is more and more of a success. Thumbs up to all the devs for not letting themselves go loose and keeping up the quality standards on the codebase. This is a trait of responsibility-awareness from their behalf that they have every right to be feeling most proud of. I'm pretty confident that action will be taken to address the problems that Morton talked about as soon as possible.
