So, what's going to be in the 1.0 kernel?  I'm wondering if my
favorate patches will be included.  They are the CLUSTER SCSI I/O
performance patches, and the acct/quota patches.  The first doubles my
disk performance, and the second makes me feel better about letting
random internet users use my guest accounts.

Those will not be in it.  Only features currently in the distributed kernel
will be in 1.0

[cheap Amoeba shot removed...]

I must say that I'm glad Linus and folks are doing the freeze on
the code.  This will give it a chance to settle-down, thus giving
us a uniform place to base all future development on.  Only big
thing that holds me back from fully endorsing 1.0 is the network
code; how is it holding up?  I know my 0.99pl14o stuff with both
PPP and SLIP runs better than any previous release, but it does
ocasionally 'hang.'  I'm not sure if it's due to the machines I
have that run NOS (KA9Q), or my Linux boxes, though I would assume
that it's the latter.

So, is the networking code stable, or not?  Will we ('we' being
the thousands of loyal Linux users) finally be able to compare our
systems to those that run NetBSD or FreeBSD?  Their only real
bragging point has been the networking code.  Will this realase
effectively remove that point from the 'my system is better than
your system' discussions?  I don't really care, though, just 
curious.

Finally, Linus said the freeze would happen when pl15 was released,
but I didn't see a date.  Did I just miss it, or was it not mentioned?

Pl14t has a collection of major TCP write side fixes contributed by
people. It would have more for closing down too but time runs out
before I can get them all in....

PPP won't be in 1.0 because the developers choose to class it as ALPHA.
It's awfully stable for alpha test software 8-). Bear in mind most of the
distributors add some of the alpha/beta pieces either directly (grrr!) or
as patch kits in /usr/src (which I much prefer). So I'd expect PPP to 
at least be on the CD-ROM distributions even if it has WARNING ALPHA TEST
stamped all over it. 

What I'm looking forward to then is the finished version of SLS everything
as loadable modules....

It's better than it was. The BSD bods have had 15 years to get their
code stable in various environments, which helps no end. if it annoys
you ask them about DOS emulation, choice of network cards, and things.
It's all a bit pointless this comparing lark. If it does what you want
use it.

Why go down to their level ?

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
