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.

A bugfix cycle could be nice, though some newer hardware might miss out on potention inclusion that round. Probably worth it though, if his hunch is correct, and the increasing number of bug complaints is due to more bugs, and not more users ;)
