 The Linux Kernel's Next Incarnation

Newsfactor tells us about Linux 2.6.

"Steve Neuner, Linux engineering director at SGI, told NewsFactor one area that is being improved greatly is the Linux scheduler. The scheduler handles running tasks, deciding which processors to run them on and what priority each task should get. Although the existing scheduler is sufficient for machines with one and two processors, Neuner said new enhancements will help avoid having tasks "hopping around between a lot of different processors."
