Linux 2.6 creeps forward

SAN FRANCISCO (10/31/2003) - Version 2.6 of the Linux kernel crept a little closer to reality as the Open Source Development Labs Inc. made available a test version, called Test9, to "test, validate, and enhance" it in preparation for the finished version due late this year or early next. The improvements include a new CPU scheduler, improved memory management, and file system code. It also features a new device driver layer so that I/O devices such as disks perform better and are easier to manage.
