Do you have a provisional timeframe for the release of the next version of the kernel?

Torvalds: Not really. It depends a lot on how I "feel" about the progress in another few months.

eWEEK: What are your goals for Linux in 2002 and where do you think it's going?

Torvalds: I don't have any huge goals for the kernel proper. A lot of what the 2.5.x work has been is actually largely cleanup and supportability compared to many of the quite fundamental things that happened during the transition from 2.2 to 2.4. Which is just good. I've told people for years that most of the new cool stuff is in user space. All the GUI work, all the cool hacks, etc.
