Re: Go ahead

How can we stop Linux from needing a reboot every two weeks due to kernel issues?

there is a reason why firewalls and other security related devices run older vetted kernels... if you are going to run bleeding edge stuff on your servers (and even workstations) you will be cut and have some blood loss at some point...

but then again, the v4 of the linux kernel has introduced inline patching (or something like that) where the kernel gets the fixes but the machine doesn't have to be rebooted...

so -1

Every OS needs patches. You can elect not to patch any system, but standing up Linux as not needing patches and Windows does is pretty absurd.

but i tend to agree with this statement in general so +1

that's a balance so your points remain the same ;)
