Why Linux Kernel 2.6 Rocks

Wednesday, August 30, 2006

So simply put... the Linux Kernel 2.6 rocks. It has so many awesome new features and is true to the Linux Kernel stability virtues. I mean, with the 2.6 release alone, we got support for millions of devices (mobile and embedded), better audio-video capabilities, support for up to 64GB RAM (I mean can Windows XP do that? No, not unless you shell out a lot more money... and hey! Linux is free! Ok, if you are running 64GB of RAM, most likely you use something like RedHat Enterprise Linux, which costs a lot, but it's open source... and its Linux! Can't go wrong there...), support for up to 16 terabytes of file systems, and millions of users! And that is only the tip of the iceberg! Read more about why the Linux Kernel 2.6 rocks @ osweekly.
