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.

It's too bad that people like Andrew Morton can't give his pragmatic opinion on current kernel needs without the crowd of anti-Linux trolls jumping up and down, screaming: "See? We told you Linux sucked, the main kernel guy says so!"

Seriously, guys, get a life. We're more interested in constructive debate, i.e. how to solve the issues.

It's too bad that people like <some dev/engineer/PM from OS> can't give his pragmatic opinion on current state of <OS> needs without the crowd of anti-<OS> trolls jumping up and down, screaming: "See? We told you <OS> sucked, <guy above> says so!"

Fixed for you.
