Well, Linus apparently has very strong feelings about this.
However, nowhere in that posting does it say
IF YOU BREAK USERSPACE I HATE YOU AND YOU ARE A TERRIBLE PERSON
So did *you* (Dominic) just make that up? I'm asking because your
posting looks just like a direct quotation from Linus, and I have
a hard time imagining a renowned person like Linus Torvalds to say
something like that.
Not breaking userspace is, of course, the right thing to do in a *stable*
version of any software. But if this means that you can't do anything new
in a *developer* version, then I guess this means we should rather stop
doing any further development and just sit on what we have. But that would
cause people complaining about a lack of innovation, I guess...
