Linux Kernel 2.6.0 Released!

Yes kids, it's true! Linus has officially released the 2.6.0 kernel. Get it from (be gentle, they are getting Slashdotted right now. You can also check the changelog. I like the summary of the changelog which was posted on Slashdot, which I reproduce in all its glory:

But if you really want a ultra-summed-up explination, 2.6 has 63.8% more kickassedness than 2.4 does. That and ALSA support built in.

Preach on! This document lists everything you will need to know to upgrade your 2.4.x kernel to 2.6.x.

WineX 3.2.1 Released

Transgaming has released WineX 3.2.1, a bugfix update to their popular gaming-oriented fork of WINE (an "open-source implementation of the Windows API"). You can read the changelog to see all the fun fixes.

The Return of the King opens today. We won't be going. *Waaahhhhhh!*

J.t.Qbe comments: I'm on my way out the door right now. No large pop. No large pop. No large pop.

The Master comments: Aaaaarrrrrggghhh!!!

A.T. Hun comments: Well, I still haven't seen the first one . . .

J.t.Qbe comments: A.T., you can't be my friend any more.

Return of the King ran 3 hours and 10 minutes, and every single minute of the thing was spectacular. It's definitely the biggest and probably the best of the 3. A must-see, but only after seeing the first two.

A.T. Hun comments: My wife has the super-mega-ultra-extended version of the first movie on DVD and asked for the second one for Christmas. If I develop the butt muscles to survive it, I might try watching them.
