I think that's a bit of an extremist view.

The 2.6 rpms Arjan has posted have gotten good use, and most people seem
to think 2.6.0-test is a _lot_ more stable than 2.4.0 was at release time.

It's certainly true that a raft of currently-unknown bugs will show up
when distros start shipping 2.6-based distros (I think the first was
Mandrake, as an experimental extra, soon be followed by Fedora?). Such
bugs always appear.

I venture to say, for the vast majority of hardware, including my 28MB
K6-2 laptop and my P133 firewall, 2.6 works just as well as 2.4 does
currently.
