The source is now 31.1Mb for the .tar.gz (2Mb bigger than 2.5.4) and 25Mb for the .tar.bz2. Clearly, the kernel has come a long way since its 5.6Mb/4.5Mb, 2.0.0 size. And to think it all begun with an innocuous 71k/62k of code, in something called ''Linux 0.0.1''. :) Download from a mirror near you."
