"The next version of the Linux kernel, due sometime in mid-to-late 2002, will offer improved support for enterprise, mobile and Internet use, said Ted Ts'o, Linux kernel developer and principal engineer at VA Linux Systems."
"During an interview at last month's first-ever Linux Kernel Development Summit, Ts'o described a host of proposed new features for the forthcoming Linux 2.5 kernel that could make the operating system a more powerful competitor against Microsoft Windows 2000 on servers and laptops.
"'There's not a lot of desktop [enhancements]; there's a lot more focus on the server space,' said Ts'o, adding that a new networking device interface, improved networking performance and asynchronous I/O support will elevate Linux's stature in the corporate world."
