Linux Version 2.6.39 once again took Linus Torvalds and his fellow developers less than 70 days to complete. This is further indication of a slight, though ever more apparent, increase in the kernel's development speed, as about 80 to 90 days still passed between the release of two versions one or two years ago. With 2.6.39, this also meant that there was a slight decrease in the number of advancements which are worth mentioning in the Kernel Log; however, there are still plenty of changes that will make Linux faster and better.

Long time Linux user, just curious about the recent power usage problems, Sandy Bridge problems, and Intel graphics regressions posted on Phoronics recently .

New features are great, just wondering how bad regressions are, considering I have a netbook?
