Linux kernel 3.13 has been released
After ten weeks of development Linus Torvalds has announced the release of Linux kernel 3.9
From Linux User magazine: "The design of the Hurd was an attempt to embody the spirit and promise of the free software movement in code."
Linux kernel 3.7 has been released. This release includes support for the new ARM 64 bit architecture, ARM multiplatform support and many more.
There are two main kernel architectures for large operating systems; monolithic and micro. While these architectures are well thought out, well implemented (usually), they have their faults.
