"Linus Torvalds, creator of the Linux operating system, told a LinuxWorld audience that the next release of the open-source operating system kernel has slipped by several months."

"However, the Linux 2.4 kernel should be available for commercial release this summer, he said."

"We're hoping to get 2.4 released in a few months," Torvalds said to a friendly and enthusiastic conference audience. "New code will make 2.4 a much better kernel in many ways."

"Torvalds said upon leaving the conference, held at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York, that he would most likely return to California and "release what will be a 'pre 2.4' " for review and betalike improvements."

"Basically, all of it is there right now," Torvalds said."
