Break From Kernel Traffic

Hi folks,

After seven years and hundreds of issues, I've decided to take a break from writing Kernel Traffic for awhile. I'd like to thank all the people who helped out, providing me with hosting space, hardware to work on, suggestions and bug reports, and money.

And I'd especially like to thank Linus and the rest of the kernel developers for so powerfully changing the world for the better. They changed the way our computers run and the way free software is developed, and they gave the commercial software industry a competitor that couldn't be bought out or starved out. For all those reasons, my little peek into the kernel development process has been a great privilege.

But Kernel Traffic has become more and more difficult over the years. From an average of 5 megs of email per week in 1999, the Linux kernel mailing list has gradually increased its traffic to 13 megs per week in 2005. Condensing that into 50 or 100 K of summaries each week has started to take more time than I have to give.

Fortunately, other online sources like Linux Weekly News and Kernel Trap provide ongoing news about the Linux kernel. Hopefully Kernel Traffic will not be missed too greatly, with these other useful resources available.
