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.

Perhaps if you would think things through before posting them, you would realize that posting your comments in a more civil manner would not result in you getting modded down. For instance, don't call people "sophomoric Linux fanboys" and completely remove your last sentence. It really isn't that difficult to post your thoughts without resorting to petty name calling and personal attacks/insults, perhaps you should try it sometime. Here, I'll give you an example if you find it difficult:

"I think Linus' decision to not develop a stable kernel API is causing a lot of the problems. If there was a stable API, new bugs would not be introduced into old drivers, like with BSD and Solaris."

See, it really isn't that difficult if you try harder.

And for the record, I agree with you, just not the way you expressed your opinion.
