Why does a new linux kernel support less or different hardware?
I can hear quite often that some graphic cards or other hardware were working absolutly fine, till the next version of
the same linux distribution. It came out that in the new kernel, the specific hardware driver isn't supported anymore.
Shouldn't it be like that, that all hardware plus new hardware will be supported in a new kernel?
What's the sense to update your system when you never can't be sure if your system is still working after that?
