Linux Version 2.0

The long-awaited Linux 2.0 is about to be released. What's new? Plenty.
Experimental Features

There are also (clearly marked!) features which are experimental in nature.

More multiple platforms support than ever is included in 2.0. While Linux/Alpha is now as stable as Linux/i86, experimental support for SPARCs, PowerPCs, Amigas, Ataris, M68K/VME and a few MIPS-based platforms is also included.

Experimental support for running Java applications as “native binaries” is available by making them look almost like shell scripts to Linux, running the proper interpreter automatically when you attempt to run the Java application.
