which makes its user base pretty small. 9.3 is where we will probably
get a lot of users. Probably more bugs will get found by the SuSE QA
team in the next few weeks though, and that should help us.

The one I am wanting to precede regarding shipping is Lindows where we
will be the default. Reiser4 is pretty stable now, but if we got into
the kernel now we'd have a few weeks of bug finding before they ship,
and I just bet there will be a few bugs found as a result (not frequent
ones, but....) that several of their users would be happy to not hit.
The official kernel has the advantage of a far faster test and fix time
cycle than a distro, and has more sophisticated users. The reason for
features going into distros first is not technical, and sad.
