Solaris and AIX manage to have very stable kernel ABIs.

Did you read the post you replied to? No claims were made about Windows. Strawman argument is strawman.

Once again, read the fucking post you replied to: it's assumed the driver is open-source but that doesn't magically create maintainers for it; the Linux kernel tree is not the place for drivers for every niche product; the kernel devs may be able to keep a driver building across kernel releases but they have no way of testing it to ensure it's functional.

So in summary, you pull a strawman and then produce the arguments that the post your responded to already addressed. As long as Linux fans ignore the problems, they won't be solved.
