2.6 fixes my random panics
I had been having tons of "out of ipc" errors and kernel panics. I upgraded to 2.6 and my box has been stable since!

Graphs over swearing in the linux kernel (http://www.vidarholen.net/contents/wordcount/) - One can't help but wonder how many of these swear words occur next to the word "Microsoft"... ;-) Tom (http://www.very-clever.com/)
God bless it
God bless Linux.
Re: 2.5.62 config options
Even though the previous post is 2 years old, this is still the case, so I'll try to explain:
Developers need to make sure that changes they make to one section of the codebase don't break code in other sections, especially in a system as tightly coupled and interdependent as the kernel, so they set all (or most) drivers to compile by default, to promote testing by the countless throngs of programmers.
A handy program
Linux is one of those programs, that I cant live without ;-). It does everything it should, and the source code has a good amount of swearing too. Keep up the work on Linux all you kernal hackers. ^^
184.108.40.206 is the Official Latest
I'm a bit surprised that the latest announcement for the 2.6 branch didn't mention the new kernel versioning scheme (http://kerneltrap.org/node/4800) and the subsequent release of 220.127.116.11 (ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/gregkh/v2.6.11/patch-18.104.22.168.gz) by Greg KH.

Re: WinZip on Linux?
in the shell, you can use the unzip command.
if you want a gui, there is ark for kde and file roller for gnome.
btw, these questions are better asked @ linuxquestions.org
An open, cross-platform journaling program.
A scientific plotting package.
