kernel fork question
as far as I've been lead to believe, 2.6 is a fork of 2.4 where 2.4 stopped production to become stable. same with 2.4 and 2.2, etc.
Well, work is still beign done on 2.4 to make it more stable, so are thoes changes also made to 2.6, or is 2.6 so much different now that it no longer even remotely resembles 2.4?
