    The kernel configuration used for the kernels currently shipped with
    Fedora 16 and Debian 6.0.3 (ie, stable or squeeze), which are the
    configurations I can examine here, have CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL set. Perhaps
    Debian and Fedora need that option for a few odd features. But it seems
    that the message given by having a feature depend on EXPERIMENTAL - to
    people using those configurations as a base to fine tune the kernel to
    their needs - isn't so strong.

    Are there any mainstream distributions that do not enable EXPERIMENTAL?
