Linux Kernel 3.0.0-rc1 Released

Linux creator, Linus Torvalds has released the 3.0.0-RC1 version of Linux kernel to mark the 20 years of Tux powered computing. Linus first released the 2.0 version of the Kernel about 15 years ago. The new release is surely going to make all Linux hackers and UNIX enthusiasts happy.

The 3.0 version adds support to Microsoft Kinnect – the gaming platform. Linus mentions in this email that the new Kernel code has been optimized for AMD Fusion and Intel Ivy & Sandy Bridge silicon. As expected, it also offers updated graphics drivers and some support for new hardware. The new Kernel is still in evolutionary stage and the new version was introduce to mark the beginning of the third decade. The OS has not been overhauled yet. There is lot of work that needs to be done and the RC needs some more refinement before its gold release.
