New Year predictions and VMware revisited

Author: JT Smith

A LinuxWorld column makes several predictions. Among them: "Version 2.4.1 will include
support for the Reiserfs journaling filesystem, as well as a host of other nice enhancements. Unfortunately, 2.4.1 will not
include the ability to create a core dump of all running threads when a multithreaded application crashes, nor will it include
the ability to assign each thread its own process identification. I predict that people will submit patches for those features,
but Linus Torvalds will not approve them, so the next kernel will not implement them."
