Linus Turns to 2.6




Torvalds, who founded the Linux kernel project in the early 1990s, on Thursday finalized the 2.5.75 kernel, which he said would be the last in the series. The 2.5 kernel, a development project aimed at experimenting with new technologies, will be integrated into the 2.6 kernel for use in finished products.

Forward motion is good.  There are many goodies in 2.5 that I can’t wait to see on mainstream Linux desktops.
