    Am I the only one that finds the kernel updates generally uninteresting?

    I guess if one is using the open source graphics drivers or maybe btrfs there's a lot happening there of significance.

    Well.... Yeah. If you aren't using USING the points of interest to kernel releases, of course you arent going to be interested. XFS and Ext4 are both in maintenance mode basically... Btrfs is the future, so if you're avoiding it for one reason or another, of course you wont care about the work affecting it.

    And if you aren't using the FOSS drivers for one reason or another (Radeon: You've got a laptop, Nouveau: you've got a new-ish card) then you won't have much interest there either...

    Read Linus' release notes, everytime what are the two biggest sources of churn in the kernel? Drivers and Filesystems. If you aren't using one or both of those, then you only care about new kernel releases for bug fixes else where.

    Linux is basically done. There's nothing more to do.

    Guess what, I'm using both!

    Both of these were found to be utterly incorrect.

    I have seen a few. One was due to some odd interaction between the kernel, intel drivers and Skype where on video call the kernel would panic. Another one that I saw two days ago was due to a PC that didn't have enough memory and thus the kernel tried to kill itself and panicked.

    I also have brightness control problems on my laptop. I think it was broken in 3.8 and has is due to devices in /sys/class/firmware
