Further Linux testing in store

Author: JT Smith

PCWeek reports that, even before the release of 2.4 earlier this month, the Linux development community was hard at work on a
wish list for the next development cycle for the open-source
operating system.

Torvalds and his team will continue to tweak the 2.4 kernel for some
time, with patches and bug fixes released as 2.4.x versions. At some
point he will create the 2.5 development tree and begin the cycle
again. Linux vendors are working on commercial versions of the
operating system, which are due within six months, that are based on
the kernel.
