Linus On Where Linux Is Going
If you've been wondering where Linux — the kernel, that is — will be going next, Linux's developer-in-chief Linus Torvalds is ready to clue you in.
According to a recent interview with Information Week, kernel development in 2008 isn't planned to involve anything particularly drastic, or as Torvalds put it, "just more of the same." Development focus will be on graphics and wireless networking, as well as virtualization — an area which the uber-developer admits he has little interest. Also on the horizon, provided hardware costs decrease, is increased development in solid state drivers.
