It has been a while since I've been excited and anxious for a new Linux kernel to be released, think the last time was the 2.2 to the 2.4 because it added SMP capabilities. Now I am really looking forward to the 2.6.38 kernel for the new scheduling feature which from everything I've read is going to increase desktop performance. Here are some links worth checking out:
Maybe this and the new window system Wayland desktop Linux might have a real chance of taking over Microsoft's control of the desktop or at least putting a dent into it.

Two down

Well I am unemployed once again and that makes it two companies (BioWare & that I did not enjoy working with in Austin. I guess on the bright side of things it is giving me the time to put the latest version of CyanogenMod on my Nexus One and also Fedora 14 on my desktop system. It will also allow me to spend Thanksgiving with my family back in Philadelphia, really looking forward to that. The plan for this week is to brew a batch a beer, do some work on my bikes (fix a flat on my Trek road bike, get my brakes working on my Cannondale & also build the wheels for my Van Dessel) and also look into some certification programs.
