Yes, how postively stupid. It sounds like someone who hasn't got the
faintest idea of how to administer a Linux operating system. One doesn't go
around installing new kernels *because one can*.
I suspect that this goes the same for all of the Unixes.

Maybe the problem is that when a new feature comes out (in the kernel or in
userland) the system administrators might need to *think* about whether it's
appropriate to include. Shock, horror! They might need to do some work...
