To quote Linus, "An experimental driver is better than no driver at all."
That is why the experimental features/drivers are included in 2.0.

In short, 2.0 is a "stable" kernel, except, perhaps, the things marked
"EXPERIMENTAL". ;-)

Actually, you may find many of the experimental features to be quite
stable. Isn't Linux amazing?!
