9. The Future

After Linux 1.0 was released, work was done on several enhancements. Linux 1.2 included disk access speedups, TTY improvements, virtual memory enhancements, multiple platform support, quotas, and more. Linux 2.0, the current stable version, has even more enhancements, including many performance improvements, several new networking protocols, one of the fastest TCP/IP implementations in the world, and far, far more. Even higher performance, more networking protocols, and more device drivers will be available in Linux 2.2.

Even with over 3/4 million lines of code in the kernel, there is plenty of code left to write, and even more documentation. Please join the mailing list if you would like to contribute to the documentation. Send mail to with a single line containing the word ``help'' in the body (NOT the subject) of the message.
