    :-)

    According to http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.16.62
    the last commit to this version was made at Mon, 21 Jul 2008 22:48:10
    +0300. Looks like it's really stable ;-)

    BTW, several distros keep patching 2.6.18, that's a bit fresher; but
    anyway, there's a valuable gap between that stable and kernel.org's
    advertised one.
