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.

There's no excuse to not having a stable APIs within the kernel, except for the fact that there was little engineering foresight in the first instance.

As Linux kernel gets bigger with more drivers, this issue is only going to get worse.
