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.

RE: Use Windows drivers

Yeah, and what will you use with x86-64? PowerPC? Itanium? ARM?

And when a bug comes up in the windows drivers?

And the performance and extra linux features lost?

This is the same problem as with binary blobs and drivers, they are not maintainable, and they are architecture-specific.
