"Sure, 2.4 still isn't here yet. But Linux developers have their wish lists for the 2.5 kernel."

"The Linux community may be eagerly awaiting the final release of the 2.4 kernel, but it is already putting together a wish list for the next major development kernel -- version 2.5."

"Once the 2.4 kernel is finalized and released, Linus Torvalds, the "father" of Linux, and his team will create the 2.5 development tree, beginning the cycle all over again. Patches and bug fixes for the 2.4 kernel will continue to be released as 2.4.x versions."

"This varies in content from minor modifications to major things like the incorporation of a journaling file system, doing more work on Linux clusters and continued work on the scheduler."
