233 lines of sheer epic is how I describe it. In theory, I’m not even supposed to be able to run 1080p video on my computer; 2.8Ghz single core. Now I can do that on a separate monitor, code in emacs, write articles about the failings of vi in vi, and compile software all at the same time. It’s truly amazing. That said, I should soon experience some sort of multitaskingasm when I upgrade to a hex-core processor this December. Anyway, the patch is planned to be integrated in 2.6.38.
