SuSe CTO Takes Issue with 'Backporting'

Anonymous Reader writes "TORONTO -- SUSE's chief technology officer said he believes the practice of "backporting" features from the 2.6 Linux kernel into older versions is a "bad thing" because it interferes with standardization of the open source operating system.
