I know what the rationale is: to avoid offending the *BSD and Hurd
users, because , ya know, they have kernels too. And if we were starting
from scratch, I'd be all for it. But at this point, it's just a stupid
annoying change that makes it hard for people to find updates. I've been
waiting for a linux-2.16.12 package to come out, but I've been filtering
on 'kernel-image.*', because that's what the name is. To change it know
is just silly political correctness.
The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the
world. -- seen on the net
