Linux 2.6.28-rc1 Kernel Released
Phoronix: Linux 2.6.28-rc1 Kernel Released
With two weeks having passed since the Linux 2.6.27 kernel release, Linus Torvalds has closed the merge window for the next kernel (Linux 2.6.28) and he has pushed out the first release candidate in this next series. The 2.6.28 kernel will have some nice highlights for those interested in the latest on Linux graphics. While Linus had referred to the Intel GEM patches as untested crap he had merged the code that introduces this in-kernel graphics memory manager...
If you want to see a very interesting talk by Andrew Morton, Linus' right hand, then check
which deals about the state of the kernel, and what's to come. it is 1 year old, but still very interesting to hear it from the inside.
In semi related, check also Linus' talk about GIT.
I bet you want use anything besides git, once you have seen this video =)
