Submission + - Linux 3.0 Will Be faster Than 2.6.39: Linus (muktware.com) 1

sfcrazy writes: While we were thinking that the announcement of 3.x branch was nothing more than Linus' mood swing, it seems there is more to it.

Linus wrote on the Linux Kernel Mailing List, "3.0 will still be noticeably faster than 2.6.39 due to the other changes made (ie the read-ahead), so yes, the regression itself is fixed."
