Maybe, perhaps I've overstating the case - but there is still some
hardware which doesn't like 2.4, and there is still alot of problems with
various parts of 2.4, viz. the number of patches people seem to apply
almost by "default" to get a reasonably stable kernel.

And it certainly is more bloated per feature set - 2.5 even more so, which
has been a recent-ish thread in lkml.
