Things aren't going downhill.   There is a new kernel.   To get the good
things that come with the new kernel you have to accept that there
will be some issues along the way.

What are you doing to help the Linux community build a better kernel?   
Have you invested any time, effort or money in helping develop that 
new kernel?    If not, why would you think that your needs would be met 
by it?   Did you even test it before deploying it?   Just what kind of CIO
are you?   Do you ever accept personal responsibility for your decisions
or just join mailing lists and instantly blame the people who gave you
something for free?

This is just your lack of knowledge poking through again.   This was not
the Fedora teams decision but that of the kernel community.   It's a good
decision that makes a better kernel and is no problem for the open
source community.

Orders of magnitude.  heh.. typical hyperbole.
