    Bigger is better They don't want it to get unstable, but I've never had any problems with a Kernel release, so I think they can increase the development speed even more without any big trouble

    Interesting... From what I've read about this kernel release it's going to be a kernel similar to 2.6.10 in that it'll change driver API, several subsystems, etc. I'd expect that upon release there's going to be major breakage from stuff like proprietary drivers, NDISWrapper, VMWare and others.
