    Gosh! I bought an ATI video card, I bought a VMware license, etc.... I
    want to keep using them. Changing a "stable" kernel will continuously
    annoy users and vendors.

    I think new developments will force a 2.7 branch: when 2.6 feature set
    stabilizes, people will keep more time testing a stable, relatively
    static kernel base, finding bugs, instead of trying to keep up with
    changes.
