Actually most of the kernel developers are using RedHat 3.0.3, older
Slackware or Debian. In fact for a very long time I was using RH 2.1 simply
because "it worked", and if you change your user mode tools its then harder
to guess what has introduced a new bug. So I'm happily trundling along with
libc5.2.18, all the tools built against it and a few new blocks of files.

I think much of the rest of this has some good points in it. I'll run
libc5.3.12 when it appears on distributions and only after a few kernel
builds are checked to work in both environments. Paranoia is a wonderful
