Linux Linux 3.3 has been released. The changes include the merge of kernel code from the Android project. There is also support for a new architecture (TI C6X), much improved balancing and the ability to restripe between different RAID profiles in Btrfs, and several network improvements: a virtual switch implementation (Open vSwitch) designed for virtualization scenarios, a faster and more scalable alternative to the "bonding" driver, a configurable limit to the transmission queue of the network devices to fight bufferbloat, a network priority control group and per-cgroup TCP buffer limits. There are also many small features and new drivers and fixes are also available. Here's the full changelog.

RE[5]: vSwitch?

Ok, Laurence, you seem to be a normal sane guy. I am glad there are Linux people (if you are that?) that gives credit where it is due.

I myself copy, but I always give credit. Everybody copies, but you should always give credit and not try to claim it as your own idea.

hehehe thank you though I wouldn't really call myself a "Linux person". I'm actually a big fan of Solaris as well as Linux. I remember trying Zones out for the 1st time and being blown away by how powerful they were and yet how simple to create. Those systems have since been migrated to FreeBSD after the Oracle/Sun takeover, however I still run a number of old Solaris 8 boxes on ageing SPARC hardware.

I think if I had to pick a favourite, I'd probably side with FreeBSD - which has only become even more epic since they've ported ZFS.

So all in all, I wouldn't say I have any particular allegiance to Linux over any other *nix OS.
