BitKeeper Doubles Pace of Linux Development

The pace of the Linux kernel development has more than doubled since Linus Torvalds switched to
the BitKeeper source management system 2 years ago.

BitKeeper's powerful peer-to-peer model is one of the key contributors to the efficiency of the Linux kernel development. David Miller of Redhat, a
senior Linux developer, has seen the improvement first hand, "Before BitKeeper I was in merge hell every time a new kernel was released. Now I do real
work instead of wasting time on repeated merging."
