For Linux's Torvalds, improved software lacks fanfare

Whenever a new version of important software is released, its developers usually try to persuade users of the many exciting features the improved
product contains.

But when you ask Linus Torvalds, overseer of the Linux free software project, about Linux 2.6, due out in a few months, he seems to struggle to come
up with a list. And when he does, it's distinctly underwhelming -- like a new "block structure" to communicate with disk drives.
