Linux 2.6.37: Scalability Improvements Abound


This year’s holiday kernel was 2.6.37, which was actually released on 4 January 2011 (perhaps it’s a New Year’s kernel) and is a good example of a kernel release during the holidays. At first glance, one would think that it was a quiet kernel with no flaming articles on the web or some seriously flawed benchmarks being posted, but you didn’t see too much of that. However, there are some great things that happened in 2.6.37 around file systems and one really cool feature that I’ll talk about at the end of the article.
