    You're kidding, right? 2.5 is no where near ready to be called anything
    like "2.6". With an actual code freeze -- as in fix the shit that's broken,
    non-functional, and/or incompletely implemented without adding any more
    stuff or rebuilding entire subsystems as opposed to the standard Linus
    "code freeze" that's much like a slushy in the 9th level of Hell (assuming
    it gets there, it doesn't last long and really does no go) -- 2.5 is about
    a year away from having the current code base fully functional and on it's
    way to stable.

    Count up the number of drivers that haven't been updated to the current
    PCI, hotplug, and modules interfaces.

    Take a look at the number of arch's that haven't seen much testing (and
    in many respects are thus broken)... does anyone have a functional 2.5.70
    sparc64 kernel? I've built several but they're all too big to be booted
    (i.e. over 3.5M, and yes, I've turned off everything possible.)
