I've been trying the 2.2.15 prereleases, and so far they seem great.
2.2.15 pre 4 (subjectively speaking) made my system much zippier
than 2.2.13/4 and 2.2.15 pre 5 which I built last night, feels
faster still (and apparently has some rather neat debug code to
trap bad application memory use/kernel bugs).
So overall I'm very pleased. Many thanks to Alan and the guys who've
been working on the VM stuff. It feels great for me.
BTW I'm running this on Mandrake 6.1, Cyrix 6x86 MX 300, 64MB RAM.
Like I say, 2.2.15 feels like it's shaping up to be the best 2.2 kernel
yet by a significant margin (to me at least!)
