Ted Ts'o on what'll be cool in Linux 2.5 kernel

Author: JT Smith

The Linux Journal interviews Ted Ts'o on the Linux kernel team's plans for version 2.5. LJ asks, what's going to be really cool in 2.5, and what's going to be really hard in 2.5?

Ts'o answers: "Zero-copy in the networking and block device layers. Better scalability in the block device layer in general. No more two terabyte
limitations, which is a good thing given that it might not be long before it becomes a real, fundamental limitation, even for 'normal' systems."
