I've been running 2.4.5 for about a week now, and everything seems
to run ok. I haven't done much with reiserfs, except create a loop fs and
saw that it worked.
Things I like are that in low memory conditions it acts a bit more
sanely what process to kill. Things I don't like are that the kernel is
becoming bigger and bigger and it seems that 64MB is tight. Also, there
are apparently many kernel unaligned accesses.
devfs is spiffy, but the dereferencing of the /dev symlinks makes
df output somewhat annoying.
