I just read the above article talking about how Linux is the embedded OS in all of these devices. Well, I own a Linksys A/B/G Access Point and Router hooked into my cable modem. If Linux is so stable, why do I have to go and reboot the Linksys router about once a week? BTW, I've got the latest firmware installed on the device.
I've never seen an operating system that didn't fail. I've seen Windows, OS/2, Unix, Linux, Mac, OS/400, and other operating systems all fail.
