Will it, at some point in the future, be possible to upgrade from the stock 2.4.x kernel to 2.6.0 by simply doing
pacman -Sy kernel ?
Or, to rephrase the question: will it be "newbie-simple" to upgrade to kernel version 2.6 when that package had been added to the repository?
once the 2.6 is stable a package will be made for it and it will be aded to the repository not before then.

Well, actually, my question isn't when it will be available, but will it be simple to upgrade to?
Having no experience trying, I'll say that the developers will do our best.
Most likely it will be pretty easy... but there may be a hitch or two that we'll tell everyone about.
