SubjectRe: Which kernel is the best for a small linux system?

Ack! Let's pick one:

Although the exact numbers of patches per time for a specific
software manufacturer - let's pick Microsoft as an example - is not known,
it is usually low (two for this *month* afaics), compared to what hits lkml
*each day*.

Does that make their software more stable than Linux? I would have my
doubts about that.
