Linux 2.6 Due for Release

By Deane Barker on November 27, 2003

Linux 2.6 Set for Release: More processors, greater interoperability, 64-bit support — what’s not to love?

After a multiyear development effort, the 2.6 version of the Linux kernel is set for release in the second half of December. This is the first major Linux kernel release since 2001, when version 2.4 was launched.
