Well I think Linux kernel is declared stable when there are no
*showstoppers* - I don't know about no *bugs*. But I'm sure there are
people on this list who follow linux development a bit more closely than I
do (says she running kernel 2.2.14).

I know games tend to be buggy on release, but this can be ascribed to a
hardware thing - they can't do extensive QA on hundreds of thousands of
different hardware configurations.
