Oops! I Fixed the Linux Kernel

Author: JT Smith

When Linux crashes, users don't get a Blue Screen like they do on Windows. Instead, Linux generates an "oops" -- a crash signature that can help developers to figure out what went wrong.

Keeping track of the "oopses" is the duty of the Kerneloops.org project, and according to supporters, its efforts have improved kernel quality and fixed a large number of bugs -- a thrust that's critical for Linux as it angles for even greater adoption in the enterprise and elsewhere.
