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.

Makes the whole article little more than idle speculation

It's speculation, and Morton admits it as such, having assigned himself the action item to dig up the numbers.

But it's not idle speculation. Had I said it, it would be idle, because I'm just a random kernel developer, AFA LKML, but AM is the gateway for code, and lives and breathes stability.

In his case, it's more highly informed speculation.
