Welcome Linux 3.0

Not every day would a Linux lover celebrate, but here is a moment of celebration marked by a Kernel release. Lets say Good Bye to the 2.6 series of kernel, and join this milestone achievement’s celebrations…

Linux is now 20 years old, and the move to the 3.0 kernel is just another way to mark the presence. The role of Linux in the world of hosting is enormous, as each Linux enthusiast would feel special of this moment.

Unlike the birth of 2.6 version back in 2003, this release is to be remembered more for the milestone than any feature additions. Apart from the inclusion of the Xen Hypervisor into the kernel, other changes are subtle, and relatively small.
