Future of Enterprise Linux kernels

Greg K-H discusses the current state of Enterprise Linux kernels. This is a topic that was discussed at length at the LF Collaboration Summit and is one of those issues that has a whole host of pros and cons on all sides. It’s easy to point out the flaws with the current setup, but very difficult to come up with a system that doesn’t have different, but just as serious, flaws. Greg gives a a great synopsis of the current situation and it’s telling that even the Novell/SuSE kernel team doesn’t agree fully on the issue. This is something I think is critical to the future success of Linux. I don’t have any direct suggestions at the moment, but it’s a topic I think needs as much exposure as possible.
