New Linux Kernel

The new Linux kernel, version 2.6.14, became available late last week. Linus Torvalds, creator of the kernel, claims that it has changes "all over the place". The big change in the standard kernel is that it now includes Centrino Wi-Fi support.

The latest version of the Linux kernel has been finally released, after being postponed twice for basically no good reason. Originally, this 2.6.14 version was supposed to be available starting October 7th, as Andrew Morton, the man responsible for developing the Linux kernel, said in a mailing list posting in September.

Linus Torvalds, the father of the Linux operating system, said that the repeated delay was a result of fears the kernel included bugs, which eventually turned out to be false.
