Veritas sends word that verison 2.4 of Linux has hit the streets. Here's word from the man himself:
Date: Thu, 4 Jan 2001 16:01:22 -0800 (PST)Ah, gardening....
From: Linus Torvalds email@example.com
To: Kernel Mailing List firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject: And oh, btw..
In a move unanimously hailed by the trade press and industry analysts as being a sure sign of incipient braindamage, Linus Torvalds (also known as the "father of Linux" or, more commonly, as "mush-for-brains") decided that enough is enough, and that things don't get better from having the same people test it over and over again. In short, 2.4.0 is out there.
Anxiously awaited for the last too many months, 2.4.0 brings to the table many improvements, none of which come to mind to the exhausted release manager right now. "It's better", was the only printable quote. Pressed for details, Linus bared his teeth and hissed at reporters, most of which suddenly remembered that they'd rather cover "Home and Gardening" than the IT industry anyway.
Well, anyway, 2.4 brings a number of improvements, including an IDE chipset update, better DVD-RAM support, a host of bug fixes, and a Firewire update. Plus lots of other stuff.
I'd link a mirror, but none of them will work for a good while anyway.
