Ok, I took the plunge, and Linux-2.0 is out there on the normal sites. I even
got the energy to write some inane announcement about it on cola, so it's too
late to chicken out any more. 

The changes from pre2.0.14:

 - Various minor TCP fixes (Eric Schenk), hopefully the "stuck in 
   SYN_SENT" thing is gone, and delayed acks might be a bit more clever. 
 - various debugging messages turned off.. (yes, finally the "socket 
   destroy delayed" message is gone ;-)
 - ISDN fixes
 - Logo included (but it's not in the patch, as it's a binary .gif file)
 - alpha updates for CIA-based machines (those DEC people either have a 
   strange sense of humor, or are totally clueless. I don't know which).
 - arcnet and eexpress driver fixes
 - SCSI should compile without /proc support (not that I've tested: sue 
 - aha152x update
 - initrd root unmount fix

Now I'm going to zonk out for a few days, and then I'll skip the country and
go to Argentina for a while. So while you struggle with the new kernel, you
can feel safe in the thought that I won't care in the least. Because I'm
taking a VACATION!

		       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 v IBM.
