Eric Van Hensbergen writes "In accordance with the ideals of the issue's open source topic, the ACM has agreed to make the July issue of Operating Systems Review: Research and Developments in the Linux Kernel available for download free of charge. It contains a number of interesting papers written by LKML members like Rusty Russell, Paul McKenna, and Eric Biederman as well as academic OS researchers who've made contributions to mainline on topics ranging from RCL, VirtIO, Checkpoint & Resume, to CUBIC TCP, etc. A primary motivation behind this special-topics OSR issue was to help bridge a gap that currently exists between the kernel community and the academic OS research community, by encouraging kernel developers to publish recent additions to the Linux kernel as well as to provide a forum for experience papers which describe the introduction and integration of research into the mainstream Linux kernel. We think it is important for the research community and the kernel community to cross pollinate more and hope this issue will be the first of many venues where the will be able to do so."
"More software projects have gone awry for lack of calendar time than for all
other causes combined."
