FUD. Please research what you are talking about before making statements 
like that. udev does not run in the background, it runs at startup to 
initially populate the /dev directory. From that point forward, if you 
do not cause any hotplug events to occur, there is no difference between 
it and a static /dev system. If you do cause hotplug events to occur, 
udev is invoked to handle those events.
