2.6 and 2.7 Release Management

Linux 173

An anonymous reader writes: "A recent discussion on the Linux kernel mailing list debated whether the upcoming 2.6 and 2.7 kernels should be released at the same time instead of first stabilizing the 2.6 'stable tree' then branching the 2.7 'development tree.' The theory behind the proposition is to keep "new" things from going into 2.6 once it is released, focusing instead only on making it stable. On the flip side of this argument is the possibility that with a 2.7 kernel in development, there will be too little focus on stabilizing the 2.6 kernel. The resulting debate makes for an interesting read."

Yep, fuck me :)

I quite an ordinary guy. No big muscles, no huge dick, not even particularly handsome, but I'm a lucky person. You know, the kind of guy that fun things always seem to happen to. I can't remember the first time I real- ized that I was lucky, but I certainly remember one night in New York City, late in the evening when I was doing a little Bar hopping, when I walked into the local bar and seated myself.

I was expecting to have a regular Friday night but the fates dealt me a new card that night. I was on my second round when a woman approached my table and asked if the extra chair had been taken. I replied that it wasn't and she proceeded to sit down.

She had suicidal blonde hair and a voluptuous body. She wore a tight miniskirt and fishnet stockings and to flatter her large breasts she wore a low cut halter top that revealed a lot of cleavage. Her eyes were the wildest shade of green I had ever seen in eyes, very light and almost florescent but not quite.

We began to talk and continued a good conversation for about an hour when the subject suddenly switched to sex. (I think that she was the one who first brought the subject up.)

We discussed our personal sexual preferences for a while and we were both getting quite horny. (You know, flirting shamelessly with each other.)

Another fifteen minutes of steamy sex talk went by when I felt her leg sweep across my foot. Thinking nothing of it I continued talking. Then I felt her leg but this time it was rubbing up and down my shin. I got an instant hard-on and pushed my leg out a bit more, so as she had plenty of room to work on it.

We continued our conversation as her leg rubbed higher and higher making its way towards my crotch area. Then her foot raised and pushed against my groin. She slid her foot up and down in a very pleasing manner. After about two minutes of this she stopped and got up.

"I'm going to freshen up." She said seductively with a wink. I guessed what she wanted me to do by the sparkle in her eyes, so after she had been gone for a couple of seconds I got up too and went off in the same direc- tion. I was in the back halls of the bar trying to find where she might be when I was pulled into a utility room. I couldn't see her but I recognized the scent of her perfume.

We where locked in each others embrace immediately like lovers who were going to die at any moment.

I slid my hand down her back, across her butt, and down her leg until I reached the bottom of her skirt. I slid my hand under and began rubbing her thighs. They were bare and I quickly discovered that she wasn't wearing any panties either.

As I was felling this bird up she was undoing my pants and sliding her hand under my boxer shorts. She rubbed my dick with those long delicate fingers I had admired before and made me so excited that I wasn't sure how much more massaging I was going to be able to stand.

I moved my hand on down until it came to the outer fringes of pubic hair, then ran my fingers through it and came to her juicy cunt. I parted her vaginal lips with my middle finger then slid it in. What a delight to feel her all lubricated for me. I love that special slickness that a horny woman has when she's ready to be fucked. It makes me crazy.

She began to move her hips up and down shoving herself on to my finger. She made noises similar to purring as she got more and more excited. Her grip on my cock tightened as she was about to orgasm.

Finally, as she came her cunt juices flowed out in barrels covering my hand and down her inner thigh. Then my pretty baby started to stroke my cock in earnest.

I slipped my fingers out of her honey pot and tried to dry them on my shirt. Before I could react my little fuck doll slid down to her knees in front of me and placed her lips on my dick. She slid her mouth over the head of it and began to bob that pretty blonde head like there was no tomorrow.

It was like an erotic torture. She managed to take my full length in one swallow gagging just a bit. I could feel the head of my dick going down her throat which was a lot like entering a pussy.

I came about a minute later after one of the best blow- jobs of my life. There was no way I could have held out any longer, she really knew what she was doing. (She must have had a lot of experience, the way she played me like a musical instrument.)

After I came she stood up in front of me. I could hear her heavy breathing and could smell my come on her breath. I could tell that she was still as stimulated as I was. So I pressed her against the wall and slowly shoved her down to the floor of the utility room. With out asking I lifted her skirt and climbed on top of her small body.

I heard her moan as I arranged my dick at her opening and I readied for the wildest fuck of my lifetime. Pushing I entered her little piece of paradise with full thrust. She screamed with pain and pleasure as my cock shoved its way home, but after a few more strokes the noises she made were those of lust.

As my dick pounded her cunt my hands found themselves fondling her firm tits. (I had torn her blouse open. I can still remember the sound of her buttons flying around the room.)

After a minute she began to get more and more excited and clamped her shapely legs around my body and started to thrust onto my cock, enabling maximum penetration. On one particularly deep thrust I felt her vaginal walls clamp around my dick like a vice. When she began to climax her back arched up off the floor and she began to make hissing noises.

I wish the lights had been on so I could have seen her face as she clawed the air. It lasted for a few seconds, then she fell back and her body relaxed under me.

I had been effected by her emotional and physical climax and came in floods myself. I emptied spurt after spurt into her until I thought if I kept doing it much longer she might explode.

After gaining the most pleasure I could from her sweaty body I withdrew my semi-hard dick from her. My white cream spilled from her used cunt as I withdrew from her. (After a couple seconds it stopped.)

"Was it good for you baby?" I asked.

"Fuck yes lover, better than I can remember ever!" She replied as she panted for air. After a brief time of silence she said, "Well I guess I should be going now." She got up.

I just kind of laid there, still out of breath as she pulled her damaged blouse closed and adjusted her skirt to cover her come soaked cunt. And a moment later she was gone.

I never did see her again, and I didn't even know her name, but I've always had a thing for suicide blondes ever since.

ketchup (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Cowrad (571322) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874424)

I once saw a mustard bottle that was shaped like a ketchup bottle.

No, really!

I'm burning karma pointlessly, and no one will read this anyway.

I didn't mind having respectable karma when it was just a number (hell, I whored my little ass off to get there), but I refuse to be associated with the word "Good". I think it would feel much better to be "Bad".

So, this is me, falling slowly (or not so slowly) back into the comfortable 0-5 karma range. I'll probably dip down into -1 for a while just for the hell of it. Back in the day, I was a pretty good troll.

Oh, and by the way, fuck all this troll grouping shite. I'm sure it's nice to have something to mindlessly blather on about and poison your .sigs with, but it's getting stupid.

Whatever happened to the art of trolling? The whole idea is to prove that your takers are fools, not to annoy them. Crapflooding, PWP, and all that were sometimes funny, oftentimes creative, but now it's all old hat, isn't it? Nobody even tries for a bite anymore.

Trolling was once a noble, intellectual game. Now it's just a bunch of fuckwits copying and pasting.

Lame.

Re:ketchup (-1)

CmdrTaco (troll) (578383) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874440)

Go for Karma: terrible. Get your karma to -4. Then post as trolls as possible in the short time between -4 and -6. You have to get to -10 or better.

As I was felling this bird up she was undoing my pants and sliding her hand under my boxer shorts. She rubbed my dick with those long delicate fingers I had admired before and made me so excited that I wasn't sure how much more massaging I was going to be able to stand.

I moved my hand on down until it came to the outer fringes of pubic hair, then ran my fingers through it and came to her juicy cunt. I parted her vaginal lips with my middle finger then slid it in. What a delight to feel her all lubricated for me. I love that special slickness that a horny woman has when she's ready to be fucked. It makes me crazy.

She began to move her hips up and down shoving herself on to my finger. She made noises similar to purring as she got more and more excited. Her grip on my cock tightened as she was about to orgasm.

Finally, as she came her cunt juices flowed out in barrels covering my hand and down her inner thigh. Then my pretty baby started to stroke my cock in earnest.

I slipped my fingers out of her honey pot and tried to dry them on my shirt. Before I could react my little fuck doll slid down to her knees in front of me and placed her lips on my dick. She slid her mouth over the head of it and began to bob that pretty blonde head like there was no tomorrow.

It was like an erotic torture. She managed to take my full length in one swallow gagging just a bit. I could feel the head of my dick going down her throat which was a lot like entering a pussy.

I came about a minute later after one of the best blow- jobs of my life. There was no way I could have held out any longer, she really knew what she was doing. (She must have had a lot of experience, the way she played me like a musical instrument.)

After I came she stood up in front of me. I could hear her heavy breathing and could smell my come on her breath. I could tell that she was still as stimulated as I was. So I pressed her against the wall and slowly shoved her down to the floor of the utility room. With out asking I lifted her skirt and climbed on top of her small body.

I heard her moan as I arranged my dick at her opening and I readied for the wildest fuck of my lifetime. Pushing I entered her little piece of paradise with full thrust. She screamed with pain and pleasure as my cock shoved its way home, but after a few more strokes the noises she made were those of lust.

As my dick pounded her cunt my hands found themselves fondling her firm tits. (I had torn her blouse open. I can still remember the sound of her buttons flying around the room.)

After a minute she began to get more and more excited and clamped her shapely legs around my body and started to thrust onto my cock, enabling maximum penetration. On one particularly deep thrust I felt her vaginal walls clamp around my dick like a vice. When she began to climax her back arched up off the floor and she began to make hissing noises.

I wish the lights had been on so I could have seen her face as she clawed the air. It lasted for a few seconds, then she fell back and her body relaxed under me.

I had been effected by her emotional and physical climax and came in floods myself. I emptied spurt after spurt into her until I thought if I kept doing it much longer she might explode.

After gaining the most pleasure I could from her sweaty body I withdrew my semi-hard dick from her. My white cream spilled from her used cunt as I withdrew from her. (After a couple seconds it stopped.)

"Was it good for you baby?" I asked.

"Fuck yes lover, better than I can remember ever!" She replied as she panted for air. After a brief time of silence she said, "Well I guess I should be going now." She got up.

I just kind of laid there, still out of breath as she pulled her damaged blouse closed and adjusted her skirt to cover her come soaked cunt. And a moment later she was gone.

I never did see her again, and I didn't even know her name, but I've always had a thing for suicide blondes ever since.

I quite an ordinary guy. No big muscles, no huge dick, not even particularly handsome, but I'm a lucky person. You know, the kind of guy that fun things always seem to happen to. I can't remember the first time I real- ized that I was lucky, but I certainly remember one night in New York City, late in the evening when I was doing a little Bar hopping, when I walked into the local bar and seated myself.

I was expecting to have a regular Friday night but the fates dealt me a new card that night. I was on my second round when a woman approached my table and asked if the extra chair had been taken. I replied that it wasn't and she proceeded to sit down.

She had suicidal blonde hair and a voluptuous body. She wore a tight miniskirt and fishnet stockings and to flatter her large breasts she wore a low cut halter top that revealed a lot of cleavage. Her eyes were the wildest shade of green I had ever seen in eyes, very light and almost florescent but not quite.

We began to talk and continued a good conversation for about an hour when the subject suddenly switched to sex. (I think that she was the one who first brought the subject up.)

We discussed our personal sexual preferences for a while and we were both getting quite horny. (You know, flirting shamelessly with each other.)

Another fifteen minutes of steamy sex talk went by when I felt her leg sweep across my foot. Thinking nothing of it I continued talking. Then I felt her leg but this time it was rubbing up and down my shin. I got an instant hard-on and pushed my leg out a bit more, so as she had plenty of room to work on it.

We continued our conversation as her leg rubbed higher and higher making its way towards my crotch area. Then her foot raised and pushed against my groin. She slid her foot up and down in a very pleasing manner. After about two minutes of this she stopped and got up.

"I'm going to freshen up." She said seductively with a wink. I guessed what she wanted me to do by the sparkle in her eyes, so after she had been gone for a couple of seconds I got up too and went off in the same direc- tion. I was in the back halls of the bar trying to find where she might be when I was pulled into a utility room. I couldn't see her but I recognized the scent of her perfume.

We where locked in each others embrace immediately like lovers who were going to die at any moment.

I slid my hand down her back, across her butt, and down her leg until I reached the bottom of her skirt. I slid my hand under and began rubbing her thighs. They were bare and I quickly discovered that she wasn't wearing any panties either.

i would recommend the stabalization of 2.6 before the branch of 2.7 (the initial arguement) and i think the flip side is incorrect... just because 2.7 is 'in the works' doesn't mean that the 2.6 hackers are going to take a nap on their work

brunes69 (86786) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874504)

A large reason for the awful VM mess that 2.4 was in around 2.4.8 - 2.4.11 or so was largely due to the fact that a totally new VM was just kind of "thrown in" to the "stable" branch, probably mainly cause there wasn't a 2.5 branch yet at that point (as I recall). This is the sort of thing that branching earlier would hopefully prevent. While the stable branch may not have some of the "bells and whistles" it could have gained from keeping the branches together, at least hopefully a mess like that can be avoided.

Then again, that's just my opinion :)

Re:Don't forget the past (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3874671)

I'll call bullshit on this one.

I'd say that the VM changes shouldn't have been pushed into a "stable" branch like that. The code should just have been shelved to be used in 2.5 -- with the possibility to backport to 2.4 if it was deemed necessary and/or useful.

All that forking the dev branch early does is move a whole bunch of developers away from fixing old code to breaking new code. That's not exactly the effect we're looking for here.

Re:Don't forget the past (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3874697)

The VM switches took place because the VM that shipped with 2.4 was broken. Not just sort of broke, but completely broken. Very few people understood how the fucking thing worked, so it sparked an urge to replace it.

Pushing 2.4 too soon is what caused that mess, not starting 2.5 so late. That's why 2.5 was about a year after 2.4, 2.4 was such a broken piece of crap.

I know what you mean. Everyone always talks about how much more stable GNU/Linux is compared to Windows. That's why I switched. I was using Windows 2000 Professional, but I haven't noticed much of an honest improvement. Sure, it doesn't crash as hard as Windows ME and earlier do, but what's the point of stability if my web-browser (one of 310981209 to choose from) crashes every ten minutes. Is the the browser? Is it some faceless kdieninitd arts oaf esd bonobo program crashing in the background? I guess I'll spend MY friday night re-installing Windows 2000.. :(

I would release them at the same time. Just as now, with 2.4 and 2.5, there are people who are very good at stabilizing current code, and people very good at developing new code. Some folks can't stand working on new things when the old need work, and vice versa.

I see this as having two benifits. First, it will help with the ``Most things work pretty well---let's go ahead and release it.'' attitude. The 2.4 series has only recently gotten stable enough to reliably use in a production environment, and not everyone agrees on that even.

Second, it will allow people to focus on what they are good at. The 2.6 series will mature much faster without adding new features in every release. Sure, there are bound to be a few gotchas, but if the focus is on stabilizing the code, they will be out by the 2.6.3 or 2.6.4 release. At the same time, people will be adding to 2.7, which should mean that there is much less time between stable kernel series releases.

I'm all for it!

The Linux kernel needs a severe restructuring of it's development model to stay afloat. Bad Things Will Happen (TM) if we keep on like we are now.

reaper20 (23396) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874623)

bah ... no it doesn't ... sure somethings could be done better - but when it comes to kernel development as a whole, its already broken about every rule to 'proper software' development ... and it's doing ok so far.

The difference between kernel distributions is not really a big deal. Maybe in a close source system it would be ... but as long as everything stays open, its no big deal. I can grab the source to the latest redhat kernel and compile it on a debian system. That's what makes linux so great in the first place.

We had huge problems a while back, they still pop up due to this. We all of a sudden had to start dealing with some HUGE (multiple GB apiece) files. It was a nightmare determining which kernels had ext3 support in them, which distros/patchlevels had all the correct utils for ext3 support, whatever. And people had done exactly what you described, recompiled their own kernels with god-knows-what kind of configs, switched distros..Ugh.

UnitedLinux is a step in the right direction, but something more granular is needed.

"2.6 and 2.7 Release Management" - Most Boring Slashdot Topic Ever!

Standard resource allocation problem (1)

Stabilizing the stable branch? (4, Insightful)

Hrunting (2191) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874493)

See, to me when someone calls it a "stable release", that means it's already been stabilized. Sure, you're going to have the occasional bug fix here and there, but actual "stabilization" should've been done in the 2.5.99 range, ie. the previous development branch. Once the stable tree is released, there shouldn't be a need to stabilize it and branching the new development tree right then makes sense. There should not be an "development" per se in the stable release after that, only the occasional maintenance.

If the kernel maintainers would just grasp this one simple point, maybe this issue wouldn't be one, and maybe people wouldn't laugh at the .0 release of the kernel.

A bazillion more people test the kernel after it hits the .0 mark and so of course mistakes are going to show up.

If you need stable kernels you should get them from Linux vendors like Red Hat and Suse etc. That's the way it has been for a long time.

cpeterso (19082) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874594)


When tons of people starting using 2.6.0, they will find new bugs. These bugs would also be in 2.7.0. Both kernel branches would need to be fixed BY HAND, increasing dev and testing time. I think it makes more sense for 2.7.0 to start with a "stable" stable 2.6.x.

The backport concept (2, Interesting)

jhines (82154) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874497)

From the bsd world, there is the concept of "backport" which is where a feature in the development kernal is ported back to a previous stable kernal series.

Great for bug fixes, and other things in the middle ground.

Certainly if there is interest, a set of patches to a stable kernel, or even another -someone kernel series can be developed. If these turn out to be in demand, and stable enoug, they can be officially included.

This "backport concept" is what made early 2.4 kernal revisions a total nightmare!

Re:The backport concept (2, Interesting)

AxelTorvalds (544851) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874774)

Backporting has been a stability problem and a source of great debate in the community.

First. The kernel is pretty damn stable. The instability people talk about are usually extreme cases or performance that is less than optimal. I have yet to see a 2.4.8 or later kernel lock up or panic on my typical hardware and I've got 3 machines running 24x7. I don't count the first 7 cuts becuase I was doing development on them and going to great pains to track them and they collectively should have been maybe to of the last 2.3.99 releases.

Linux is large. There are hundreds of regular contributors as well as a number of companies doing stuff. 2.3 lasted way to long and so everybody wanted to get their stuff in to 2.4 because 2.6 could be 2 years away after 2.4 came out. That was a mistake. The kernel underwent a lot of change during 2.3.99 and people were still adding tons of stuff. There were bitter fights about what should go in and when. You hate to be SGI, spend hundreds of thousands of dollars (I'm guessing that's the man hour cost) porting SGI and not make the cut and then wait 2 more years.

At the same time the releases need to be tempered. People say 2.0.40 is a bad sign because it needed 40 patches. We could be on kernel 4.2 now if we made the releases closer and that just creates more confusion in a lot of ways also. 2.4 took way too long and too much happened. 2.6 will be much better and the community needs to see that and get used to 6 to 9 to 18 months for a major release. Companies need to understand that and make their investments accordingly. It's difficult though because there are so many independant people developing stuff they are planning to get in and it all can't go to Linus when he says he's getting ready to lock it down.

I think if anything, maybe 2.7 should branch off before 2.6 is cut. Linux and the team and go through the big items and determine where and when and then make some timelines accordingly. You give people working on the bigger things a place to put their stuff. Then the final 2.5 releases shouldn't be as rushed.

What are the proposed new features in 2.5 and 2.6 (3, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 12 years ago | (#3874525)

The linux kernel,. besides stability .. what sort of things do they want top add/improve?

better networking? better I/O performance?

what about multiple CPU support?

The most important thing for me would be resource management features .. such as being able to allocate how much CPU, memory, or disk space a particular user or process can use. These are things that solaris has had for a long time .. and it seems that linux kernel developers arent interested in adding those features .. how can linux hope to take over the enterprise server market without it?

Does anyone have any info on what's happening in the area of adding resource management features to the linux kernel?

Actually any info on what cool features they are working on for future releases would be appreciated

Simultaneous Release... (3, Interesting)

Nighttime (231023) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874532)

...would be a good idea IMHO if this kept Linus away from working on the stable branch.

Look at what happened with 2.4, we had the change to VM, 2.4.11 which needed immediate patching and is tagged as dontuse, 2.4.13 similar problems, 2.4.15-greased-turkey released by Linus for Thanksgiving and a nice syncing problem.

When it comes to deciding what is and is not allowed into the kernels the buck stops with Linus. This is why I think Linus should stick with the development kernels where a major change can have all its kinks worked out in relative safety. The stable branches should be maintained by someone who only has authority to accept and apply bug fixes.

Re:Simultaneous Release... (1)

All our opinions matter. It is just that these are not all heard where they need to be. Even if we don't run production level servers would we not want to see the kernel development work a little smoother and not have major problems arise in a stable release, such as the VM in kernel 2.4.11.

Isn't the kernel made by the people for the people. I think we should all voice our opinions and those that get heard great, maybe they will make a difference.

I for one would like to the see the development kernel be forked as soon as possible and let Linus continue his work on that, and have the new stable kernel maintain to the point it is stable and is being fixed of bugs.

Just my thoughts (4, Insightful)

young jedi (311623) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874627)

If 2.7 begins before 2.6 is stable aren't we in danger of seeing a win9x syndrome in that bugs will live for ever and instead of being fixed they will be coded around. I fear very much the long term affects on the kernel and in turn Linux if the trees are split prior to a stabilization period. I am a developer, not on this level, but I have seen the affects of splitting a code base simply to continue developing and at the same time trying to patch existing "production code" and then port things back and forth. It is a very bad idea!! Usually what happens is things don't get back ported they are only provided doing a major upgrade, again the microsoft way of bug fixing.

Granted, you will always have some cross patching, however I think the idea of building off of a clean base is very important. For example, you would not put new tires on your car if the engine is not running, right?

Essentially, I think the issue here is one of knowing the base is clean versus drudging on in the dark despite the fact that you have been offered a lantern.

To put this most bluntly I would call this Microsoft syndrome. As I said before win9x is the perfect example of a system that was never stabilized rather it was constantly released to the unsuspecting public as upgrades which where really bug fixes and the monkeys went back to the keyboards never addressing issues raised by numerous consumer requests on the so called production release because the devel team would rather work on that new feature because it is more interesting than maintaining the existing code base.

I am being harsh here I know, but I am trying to view this in the long term. I feel that this would weaken the kernel and as I said weaken Linux which would in the end at least decrease corporate trust in the stability of Linux or at worst give M$ what it wants, Linux's death,

Maybe I am extreme, feel free to beat me but I know you have to have a clean starting point before you can move forward otherwise you will constantly be taking steps backwards which eventually leads to stagnation and death.

Horny Smurf (590916) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874676)

I quite an ordinary guy. No big muscles, no huge dick, not even particularly handsome, but I'm a lucky person. You know, the kind of guy that fun things always seem to happen to. I can't remember the first time I real- ized that I was lucky, but I certainly remember one night in New York City, late in the evening when I was doing a little Bar hopping, when I walked into the local bar and seated myself.

I was expecting to have a regular Friday night but the fates dealt me a new card that night. I was on my second round when a woman approached my table and asked if the extra chair had been taken. I replied that it wasn't and she proceeded to sit down.

She had suicidal blonde hair and a voluptuous body. She wore a tight miniskirt and fishnet stockings and to flatter her large breasts she wore a low cut halter top that revealed a lot of cleavage. Her eyes were the wildest shade of green I had ever seen in eyes, very light and almost florescent but not quite.

We began to talk and continued a good conversation for about an hour when the subject suddenly switched to sex. (I think that she was the one who first brought the subject up.)

We discussed our personal sexual preferences for a while and we were both getting quite horny. (You know, flirting shamelessly with each other.)

Another fifteen minutes of steamy sex talk went by when I felt her leg sweep across my foot. Thinking nothing of it I continued talking. Then I felt her leg but this time it was rubbing up and down my shin. I got an instant hard-on and pushed my leg out a bit more, so as she had plenty of room to work on it.

We continued our conversation as her leg rubbed higher and higher making its way towards my crotch area. Then her foot raised and pushed against my groin. She slid her foot up and down in a very pleasing manner. After about two minutes of this she stopped and got up.

"I'm going to freshen up." She said seductively with a wink. I guessed what she wanted me to do by the sparkle in her eyes, so after she had been gone for a couple of seconds I got up too and went off in the same direc- tion. I was in the back halls of the bar trying to find where she might be when I was pulled into a utility room. I couldn't see her but I recognized the scent of her perfume.

We where locked in each others embrace immediately like lovers who were going to die at any moment.

I slid my hand down her back, across her butt, and down her leg until I reached the bottom of her skirt. I slid my hand under and began rubbing her thighs. They were bare and I quickly discovered that she wasn't wearing any panties either.

As I was felling this bird up she was undoing my pants and sliding her hand under my boxer shorts. She rubbed my dick with those long delicate fingers I had admired before and made me so excited that I wasn't sure how much more massaging I was going to be able to stand.

I moved my hand on down until it came to the outer fringes of pubic hair, then ran my fingers through it and came to her juicy cunt. I parted her vaginal lips with my middle finger then slid it in. What a delight to feel her all lubricated for me. I love that special slickness that a horny woman has when she's ready to be fucked. It makes me crazy.

She began to move her hips up and down shoving herself on to my finger. She made noises similar to purring as she got more and more excited. Her grip on my cock tightened as she was about to orgasm.

Finally, as she came her cunt juices flowed out in barrels covering my hand and down her inner thigh. Then my pretty baby started to stroke my cock in earnest.

I slipped my fingers out of her honey pot and tried to dry them on my shirt. Before I could react my little fuck doll slid down to her knees in front of me and placed her lips on my dick. She slid her mouth over the head of it and began to bob that pretty blonde head like there was no tomorrow.

It was like an erotic torture. She managed to take my full length in one swallow gagging just a bit. I could feel the head of my dick going down her throat which was a lot like entering a pussy.

I came about a minute later after one of the best blow- jobs of my life. There was no way I could have held out any longer, she really knew what she was doing. (She must have had a lot of experience, the way she played me like a musical instrument.)

After I came she stood up in front of me. I could hear her heavy breathing and could smell my come on her breath. I could tell that she was still as stimulated as I was. So I pressed her against the wall and slowly shoved her down to the floor of the utility room. With out asking I lifted her skirt and climbed on top of her small body.

I heard her moan as I arranged my dick at her opening and I readied for the wildest fuck of my lifetime. Pushing I entered her little piece of paradise with full thrust. She screamed with pain and pleasure as my cock shoved its way home, but after a few more strokes the noises she made were those of lust.

As my dick pounded her cunt my hands found themselves fondling her firm tits. (I had torn her blouse open. I can still remember the sound of her buttons flying around the room.)

After a minute she began to get more and more excited and clamped her shapely legs around my body and started to thrust onto my cock, enabling maximum penetration. On one particularly deep thrust I felt her vaginal walls clamp around my dick like a vice. When she began to climax her back arched up off the floor and she began to make hissing noises.

I wish the lights had been on so I could have seen her face as she clawed the air. It lasted for a few seconds, then she fell back and her body relaxed under me.

I had been effected by her emotional and physical climax and came in floods myself. I emptied spurt after spurt into her until I thought if I kept doing it much longer she might explode.

After gaining the most pleasure I could from her sweaty body I withdrew my semi-hard dick from her. My white cream spilled from her used cunt as I withdrew from her. (After a couple seconds it stopped.)

"Was it good for you baby?" I asked.

"Fuck yes lover, better than I can remember ever!" She replied as she panted for air. After a brief time of silence she said, "Well I guess I should be going now." She got up.

I just kind of laid there, still out of breath as she pulled her damaged blouse closed and adjusted her skirt to cover her come soaked cunt. And a moment later she was gone.

I never did see her again, and I didn't even know her name, but I've always had a thing for suicide blondes ever since.

So, the best time to let 2.6 "escape" is when you're fairly confident it's "ready" and won't need patching.

Of course, you'll be wrong -- it will need patching, or backports of useful features that just didn't make it in time.

But, the idea is that these patches or backports should be trivial "oopses" where the change does not require massive code review, or the backport is clearly something that was "99% done" already.

So, my suggestion is release 2.7, and hold off on release 2.6 until the obvious release-related "oops"es are found, say 1-2 weeks, then try your best to release a 2.6 that won't need patching. It will anyway, but don't lose sleep over it.

Even numbered releases HAVE to be stable! (3, Interesting)

Anyone who runs production systems expects (demands?) even-numbered releases to be stable.

There's no serious linux admin out there that wants to have to test a new supposedly "stable" kernel for a week before employing it on a bunch of mission critical boxes. Say I want/need a feature in the new release of the "stable" kernel, should i expect anything less that a kernel that is rock solid? There's people still running 2.2 series kernels because of the whole 2.4 feature creep fiasco.

All the stability issues should be worked out before a kernel is considered "stable." Seems to make sense to me...

Early unstable kernels are too broken anyway (3, Interesting)

iabervon (1971) | more than 12 years ago | (#3874807)

Unstable series often start off with versions which break everything, because whatever fundamental change is first up for the series has gone in and the drivers and so on haven't been updated. It was a long time in 2.5 before it was really sensible for people to work on it (aside from the bio work), and people were actually doing their development on 2.4 even after 2.5 had started. In part, this wasn't even an issue of stability: Linus just wasn't taking patches on other subsystems. If 2.7 starts when 2.6 comes out, and major changes go into 2.7.1, people will stay on 2.6 until the first major set of changes in 2.7 has stabilized. Provided that the first thing under development in 2.7 isn't broken in 2.6 (in which case, the people who could fix it would be working on 2.7), everyone important to fixing obscure bugs in 2.6 will still be working on 2.6, but sitting on their patches, because they can't go into 2.6 (not fixes). As the interfaces for 2.7 (where they differ from 2.6) become known, people will start using them, but, until that point, 2.6 and 2.7 are basically the same, except that you can get 2.6 running to develop on.

What's New in Security (-1, Troll)

Introduction

Businesses have extended the traditional local area network (LAN) by combining intranets, extranets and Internet sites; as a result, increased system security is now more critical than ever before. To provide a secure computing environment, the Windows .NET Server operating system will provide many important new security features and improves on the security features originally included in Windows 2000 Server.

Trustworthy Computing
Viruses exist and software security is an ongoing challenge. To address these facts Microsoft has made Trustworthy Computing a key initiative for all its products. Trustworthy Computing is a framework for developing devices powered by computers and software that are as secure and trustworthy as the everyday devices and appliances you use at home. While no Trustworthy Computing platform exists today, the basic redesign of Windows .NET Server is a solid step towards making this vision a reality.

The Common Language Runtime
The Common Language Runtime (CLR) software engine is a key element of Windows .NET Server that improves reliability and helps ensure a safe computing environment. It reduces the number of bugs and security holes caused by common programming mistakes--as a result, there are fewer vulnerabilities for attackers to exploit.

CLR verifies that applications can run without error and checks for appropriate security permissions; making sure that code only performs appropriate operations. It does this by checking for things such as: where the code was downloaded or installed from; whether it has a digital signature from a trusted developer; and whether the code has been altered since it was digitally signed.
Benefits

Windows .NET Server will provide a more secure and economical platform for doing business
Benefit Description
Lower Costs This results from simplified security management processes such as access control lists and Credential Manager.
Implementation of Open Standards The IEEE 802.1X protocol makes it easy to secure wireless LANs from the threat of eavesdropping within your business environment.
Protection for Mobile Computers and other New Devices Security features such as Encrypting File System (EFS), certificate services, and automatic smart card enrollment make it easier to secure a full range of devices.

EFS is the core technology for encrypting and decrypting files stored on NTFS volumes. Only the user who encrypts a protected file can open the file and work with it. Certificate Services is the part of the core operating system that allows a business to act as its own certification authority (CA) and issue and manage digital certificates.

Automatic smart card enrollment and self-registration authority features provide enhanced security for enterprise users by adding another layer of authentication; this is in addition to simplified security processes for security conscious organizations.

New Features and Improvements

The Windows .NET Server Family will provide the following:

* A more secure platform for doing business.
* The best platform for your public key infrastructure.
* Secure extension of your business to the Internet.

A More Secure Platform for Doing Business
Windows .NET Server will provide many new and improved features that combine to create a more secure platform for doing business.
Feature Description
Internet Connection Firewall Windows .NET Server will provide Internet security using a software-based firewall called Internet Connection Firewall (ICF). ICF provides protection to computers directly connected to the Internet, or to computers located behind an Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) host computer that is running ICF.
Secure IAS/RADIUS Server The Internet Authentication Server (IAS) is a Remote Authentication Dial-in User Server (RADIUS) that manages user authentication and authorization. It also manages connections to the network using a variety of connectivity technologies, such as dial-up, virtual private networks (VPNs), and firewalls.
Secure Wireless and Ethernet LANs Windows .NET Server enables the authentication and authorization of users and computers that connect to wireless and Ethernet LANs. This is accomplished by Windows .NET Server support of the IEEE 802.1X protocols. (IEEE 802 standards define methods for accessing and controlling LANs.)
Software Restriction Policies Windows .NET Server will let a system administrator use policy or execution enforcement to prevent executable programs from running on a computer.

For example, specific corporate-wide applications can be restricted from running unless they're executed from a particular directory. Software restriction policies can also be configured to prevent virus-infected or malicious code from running.
Security Improvements for Servers on Ethernet and Wireless LANs Windows .NET Server will provide security for both Ethernet and wireless LANs that are based on IEEE 802.11 specifications, and that support public certificates deployed using autoenrollment or smart cards.

These security improvements enable access control to Ethernet networks in public places like malls or airports. Authentication of computers within an extensible authentication protocol (EAP) operating environment is also supported.
Increased Web Server Security Information security is a critically important issue for organizations everywhere. To increase Web server security, Internet Information Services 6.0 (IIS 6.0) will be configured for maximum security right out of the box--its default installation is "locked down."

Advanced security features in IIS 6.0 include: selectable cryptographic services, advanced digest authentication, and configurable access control of processes. These are among the many new security features that enable you to conduct business securely on the Web.
Encrypting the Offline Files Database The option to encrypt the Offline Files database is now available. This is an improvement over Windows 2000 where cached files could not be encrypted.

This feature supports the encryption and decryption of the entire offline database. Administrative privileges are required to configure how offline files will be encrypted.
FIPS-compliant, Kernel-mode, Crypto Module This cryptographic module runs as a driver in kernel-mode and implements Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)-approved cryptographic algorithms. These algorithms include: SHA-1, DES, 3DES, and an approved random number generator.

The FIPS-compliant, kernel-mode, crypto module lets governmental organizations deploy FIPS 140-1-compliant, Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) implementations using:

* L2TP (Layer Two Tunneling Protocol)/IPSec VPN client and server.
* L2TP/IPSec tunnels for gateway-to-gateway VPN connections.
* IPSec tunnels for gateway-to-gateway VPN connections.
* IPSec-encrypted, end-to-end, network traffic between client and server, and server to server.

New Digest Security Package The new digest security package supports the digest authentication protocol, along with RFC 2617 and RFC 2222. These protocols are supported by both Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) and the Active Directory® service.
System Security Improvements Important improvements have been made to ensure overall system security including:

* Increased performance improvement of over 35 percent when using the secure sockets layer (SSL).
* IIS is not installed by default. To deploy IIS, it first has to be installed using Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. Buffer checking capability in Microsoft Visual Studio®. (Buffer overruns are commonly used by hackers to exploit a system.)

Credential Manager Credential Manager in Windows .NET Server will provide a secure store for user credentials, including passwords and X.509 certificates.

These credentials provide a consistent, single sign-on experience for users--including roaming users. A Win32® API is available that allows server- and client-based applications to obtain user credentials.
SSL Client Authentication Improvements In Windows .NET Server the SSL session cache can be shared by multiple processes. This reduces the number of times a user has to reauthenticate with applications, and reduces CPU cycles on the application server.

The Best Platform for Your Public Key Infrastructure
Windows .NET Server will make it easier to deploy a public key infrastructure, along with associated technologies like smart cards.
Feature Description
Certificate Autoenrollment and Autorenewal These important new features dramatically reduce the amount of resources needed to manage X.509 certificates.

Windows .NET Server will make it possible to automatically enroll and deploy certificates to users--and as certificates expire, they can be automatically renewed.

Certificate autoenrollment and autorenewal make it easier to deploy smart cards faster, and improve the security of wireless (IEEE 802.1X) connections by automatically expiring and renewing certificates.
Windows Installer Digital Signature Support Digital signature support enables Windows Installer packages and external cabinets to be digitally signed. This lets IT administrators provide a more secure Windows Installer package, which is especially important if a package is sent over the Internet.
Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Improvements The certificate server included in Windows.NET Server now supports delta CRLs. A CRL makes the publication of revoked X.509 certificates more efficient, and makes it easier for a user to retrieve a new certificate.

And because you can now specify the location where a CRL will be stored, it's much easier to move it to accommodate specific business and security needs.

Secure Extension of Your Business to the Internet
A business needs a secure way to communicate with employees, customers and partners that are not located within its intranet. Windows .NET Server will make it easier to securely extend access to your network for individuals and other businesses that need to work with data or use resources.

Feature Description
Passport Integration A Passport identity can be mapped to an Active Directory identity within Windows .NET Server. For example, by associating a Passport identity with an Active Directory identity a business partner can be authorized to access resources through IIS, rather than having to logon directly to a Windows network. Passport integration will provide an equivalent single sign-on experience using IIS.
Cross-Forest Trusts If you're working with a partner or company that has an Active Directory forest deployed, you can use Windows .NET Server to set up a cross-forest trust between their forest and yours.

This allows you to explicitly trust certain, or all, users or groups in the other forest. You also have the capability to set permissions based on user or groups that are resident in the other forest. Cross-forest trusts make it easy to conduct business with other companies using Active Directory.

Summary

Efficient and secure networked computing is more important than ever for a business to remain competitive. Windows .NET Server will let you take advantage of your existing IT investments, and extend those advantages to your partners, customers, and suppliers by deploying key features like cross-forest trusts and Passport integration.

Windows .NET Server will provide services that create a more secure environment for doing business. It's easy to encrypt sensitive data and software restriction policies can be used to prevent damage caused by viruses and trojans. And Windows .NET Server is the best choice for deploying a public key infrastructure; its autoenrollment and autorenewal features make it easy to deploy smart cards and certificates across the enterprise.
