“As I have been a regular compiler and user of
development kernels lately, I mention below my own observations on
the Linux kernel and some of the new kernel features that I find
particularly interesting.” — Thomas E. Vaughan

Thomas E. Vaughan outlines some of the new features and problems
in the latest major revision of the Linux kernel. The article also
includes a good description of the kernel, including its purpose
and version numbering system.
