    We're working on it. Andrea Arcangeli is currently improving
    the disk scheduling algorithm, I have some (small) changes to
    the memory management subsystem and a number of other people
    are working on patches that aren't ready/public yet...

    The Internet is not a network of computers. It is a network
    of people. That is its real strength.
