Linux kernel 3.0 is near

Linux Torvalds, has signed off the release candidate version as Linux 3.0 RC1.
What is new in it ?

  • New Microsoft Kinect driver
  • updated graphics drivers
  • cleancache support
  • optimizations for Intel and AMD processors

But mainly this new numbering will force companies to keep their products close to the latest kernels. Right now there are many companies that trumpet they support 2.6 kernel and in fact they are supporting the old 2.6.26 or worse version.

Also this move celebrates Linux entering in it’s third decade of life.

Well . I can say that i’m slightly older than linux . But not with much.
