How, exactly, is that attitude going to help the general acceptance of
Linux as an operating system to be taken seriously? Sure, the people
reading this group, by and large, are the people you speak of. But
people who aren't hackers, and who are interested in Linux as an
operating system, don't care why there isn't a stable kernel -- they
just care that there isn't. We've seen how easy it is to be blown off
by the major trade publications just because they can't RTFM. If we
don't have a stable kernel, we don't have a prayer.
