"IT managers will have to hold their breath a little longer for
the 64bit Linux kernel - but might receive an early Christmas
"Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux open source operating
system, has said that the long-awaited 64bit version 2.4 of the
Linux kernel is still some weeks away."
"At the Linux World Conference and Expo Torvalds said, "It's
