Kernel Comment: Get testing!

Linux users should test the latest kernel from time to time – if they don’t, they shouldn’t be surprised if something important gets broken the next time a major update is released.

New drivers for old kernel versions – it’s a common request, especially from people new to Linux, and the Linux Kernel Backporting Project wants to make it happen. It’s a great idea, as it can sometimes be injudicious or impossible to swap a tried and tested kernel for a newer kernel and, until now, it’s been hard to get hold of new drivers any other way.
