From ZDNet: "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."
