"The Linux 2.4 kernel is the first kernel the enterprise
helped build, and it shows. Driven by the demands of enterprise
customers, enterprise applications and intensive benchmarking (some
of which was carried out by eWeek Labs), the Linux 2.4 kernel has
far more of an enterprise focus than ever before."
"In particular, storage manageability, capacity increases and
SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) are the key areas where the new
kernel takes dramatic strides beyond its 2.2 predecessor."
"What's still needed overall is a journaling file system (which
is almost out: Linus Torvalds has added the Naming System Venture
development group's journaling file system, ReiserFS, to the
upcoming 2.4.1 kernel release); certified high-security versions of
Linux; more support among enterprise management software vendors;
greater directory integration and policy-based management to allow
central administration of groups of machines at once; and more
consistent, complete graphical system administration tools."
