    SubjectRe: Linux 2.4.10-pre11
    Ummmm.. because the 2.4 series is supposed to be the stable series.. and
    a lot of people's comments on virtually every 2.4 kernel have expressed
    dissatisfaction with it's stability..

    So a lot of people haven't left the 2.2 series yet, and are waiting for
    a 2.4 series that everyone is happy with.. Even in your note, you
    haven't indicated a release 2.4 version that makes you happy.
