As a Christmas (or holiday) gift to all Linux users, Linus Torvalds last night put out the Linux 2.6.33-rc2 kernel release. This is the second release candidate since the closing of the Linux 2.6.33 kernel merge window, that brought the long-awaited Nouveau driver, many other graphics improvements, and other exciting changes.

The holiday 2.6.33-rc2 release announcement from Linus Torvalds can be read at LKML.org.

While I may be away on a sabbatical for Windows, you can continue to see how the performance of the Linux 2.6.33 kernel continues to evolve on a daily basis using the Phoromatic Tracker's kernel tracker.
