"The Linux community passed another milestone in the
development of the next version of the Linux operating system this
week, but in a way that would make Microsoft proud...."
"Linus Torvalds, the creator of the OS and leader of the Linux
movement, posted a test version of the kernel bearing that version
"While the new version is a step closer to the real thing,
Torvalds says the "2.4.0-test1" kernel still is a prototype. The
nomenclature is reminiscent of the methods of Microsoft, famed for
coming up with a variety of different definitions to describe the
pre-release state of its software."
"It doesn't really exist yet," Torvalds said in a note
accompanying the newest test version. "It's not a real 2.4.0
release, but we should be getting closer."
