Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Various reviews I've seen about Ubuntu have attacked the release names (Hoary Hedgehog, Breezy Badger and upcoming Dapper Drake), or the 'ugly' brown GNOME screen background (which is easily changed). I consider such "flaws" to be trivial. When push comes to shove, I want my operating system to 'just work', and in this department Ubuntu delivers."

yes, because you're in the middle of something but when 2.6 came, the nvidia drivers of this time needed a lot of hard manual tweaking in order to work... Still, 2 versions later of nvidia drivers worked correctly....
but you had to wait 2 months for that..
so no, your argument is not even close to one. Let us just wait the next kernel abi changing and see how long will we wait for the next nvidia stable release (I bet 2 months as usual)


Don't forget Linus hates binary drivers so he just doesn't mind about changing his abi "if they released their drivers as source, they'll already be in the kernel" something like that..
I don't judge, I'm glad oss exist but sometimes everybody seems to be to much rigid.......

(I think the glibc folks are way worse about binary compability for exemple)
