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: Time for 2.7 series?

This was discussed extensively on LKML early last year, and the new model was introduced to replace the old even/odd model, because it was thought to solve various problems.

I doubt there'd be much support for going back to the older model after giving the new model such a short trial.
