No, not Open Source. Linux. L - I - N - U - X
Linux is Open Source. Open Source is not Linux.

Linux developers don't give a sh*t, but not all Open Source developers are like that.
Then have a look at Windows. A new API (on top of all the old ones) with ever release.

Not all, but most. Including just about every big name in the community.

How do you propose adding functionality without adding APIs to access it? The only drastic change since Win95 was .NET. Sure, driver APIs have had to change over time to handle drastic changes in hardware, but even those managed to stay stable from Win98 through XP (not sure if Vista does WDM).
