    Linux kernel 2.6.38 has been released, bringing performance
    improvements for databases

The newest update to the Linux operating-system kernel features a number 
of enhancements that should offer a performance boost, particularly for 
running databases and other programs that require maximum resources from 
the server.

The 2.6.38 kernel features some "really deep changes," noted Linux 
creator and manager Linus Torvalds in an email announcing the release 
<>. This kernel has been released 
only 10 weeks after the previous version, 2.6.37.
