What's with the rush to push 2.0.0 out the door? It seems (from the
number of Oops reports) that 1.3.9x and 1.99.x are far from stable. I've
got 1.99.1 #1-pre-2.0 running on a test box (old a.out system) and its
gone 8 hours with very little load (other than a few runs of make -j
zImage :)...but 8 hours doesn't make a kernel "stable". Just last night,
a system I thought was stable (1.2.13/1.2.14 cyclades terminal server) died
horribly after 15 days.

OTOH, alot of people probably won't touch 2.0.x until 2.0.10...cause they
know 2.0.x won't be "stable".
