Linux "On the Linux kernel mailing list, Willy Tarreau has announced that there will be no more releases for version 2.4 of the Linux kernel. Tarreau, who is responsible for maintaining the Linux 2.4 kernel, said that 'few people' still use this version. According to him, these users are better served by a central Git repository that collects bug fixes and that he has now created such a repository for them." I remember when 2.4.0 was released... Proper USB support! Them were the days.

It is now almost 10 years since 2.6.0 was released.
If anything, I am surprised that support for 2.4 wasn't stopped earlier.

Christ. I remember building Linux 2.2.x in something like 2 minutes and 30 seconds on my overclocked 500? MHz dual Celeron system. I think 25 minutes is closer now, with a bazillion times faster quad core AMD. So that was before 2001.
