Linux 2.4 delays
Posted on: 05/03/2000 04:29 PM

Ugg, if you're a Linux user, you no doubt follow kernel development. The moment I hear about a new stable kernel release, I generally download and compile it. Well, we've been waiting on 2.4 for awhile now. It will bring an aweful lot to the table as far as features go. However, over at Zdnet they are telling us we may have to wait until October to benefit from it. From the man himself (Linus Torvalds)...
"We didn't much have a timetable for 2.4 originally, except that everyone knew that the two and a half years between 2.0 and 2.2 was too painful," Torvalds said. "The original hope was to have a release schedule between nine and 12 months, which everybody thought was wonderful, but at the same time a lot of people wondered about how it would work with a minimum three-month testing cycle. Right now it's been about 15 months since 2.2, and it's almost certainly going to be at least three more months..."
Well, it'll be released eventually, and I'll be all over it baby! Check the rest of the article out here.
