ZDNET UK: Linux Expo: Alan Cox says 2.4 kernel by November

(Other stories by Will Knight)

"Linux developer extraordinaire, Alan Cox, revealed at the first ever UK Linux Expo exclusively to ZDNet UK that the 2.4 kernel of Linux could be available for developers everywhere as soon as November..."

"This revelation should delight Linux disciples as well as the encouraging noises Cox made concerning hardware developments. He suggests that the most significant forthcoming events for the Linux community may be in this area. "The biggest development is going to be scaling," he says. "There are a lot of multi-processor machines on the way from vendors and SGI who are really interested in 256 way machines..."

"Appropriately decked out in a red hat exactly like the one used as a trademark by Red Hat as he browsed the stands, Cox was swamped by adoring follows of the Linux hoping perhaps that a little of his coding expertise might rub of on them. Cox is obviously enjoying the first ever official Linux-fest in his own country."
