    Don't forget the fact that 2.4 is the first kernel you
    managed to get stable under high load since 1.2.

    Both 2.0 and 2.2 didn't get stable until Alan took over
    and Alan's 2.4 fork got stable some 4 months before your
    2.4 tree got stable.

    I think you've pretty much proven how well random
    development works.

    regards,

    Rik
