"SuSE Linux 6.1, which becomes available April 19, incorporates major improvements made to the open-source operating system with its new kernel release, Linux 2.2, according to a statement from SuSE, based in Nuremberg, Germany."

"Some changes in the new release reflect the improvements in Linux 2.2, such as symmetric multiprocessing -- the operating system's ability to handle more than one processor at a time."..."A feature called advanced router options also gives Linux more flexibility for use in computer networks. The new release also includes support for infra-red interfaces."
