"KernelTrap's first interview was with Robert Love in October of
2001. Since that time, his kernel preemption patch has been merged
into the 2.5 development kernel and he's continued to be active on
the Linux kernel development scene. He recently agreed to speak
with us again.
"In this interview, Robert discusses the status of Linux kernel
preemption, talks about his recent involvement with the O(1)
scheduler, and explains his recent VM overcommit work. He also
reflects upon Linus' use of Bitkeeper, the future of Linux, and the
recent Kernel Summit in Ottawa.
"Presently in California working for MontaVista, Robert will
return to college for his third year at the University of Florida
in late August. Read on for the full interview..."
