For all you Linux folks you can grab the new kernel here or check out the change log here.
I don't see much difference from 2.6.1 unless you specifically need it for certain support or better support for existing HD.
I always thought that Linux was safe and good, but now I am looking at 100+ pages of changelog between 2.61 and 2.62 alone...
Mistakes happen. And not everything in the changelog is a critically serious issue. *Shrug*
I compiled it, haven't really noticed a difference between 2.6.0, 2.6.1, and 2.6.2, the 2.6.x does seems a hell of a lot faster than the 2.4.x
Imagine if you saw the changelog for some Microsoft kernel between "versions".
Also like alot of things in the computer world you don't have to upgrade unless there is a new feature/bug fix/security patch that you need. New doesn't always = better/stable
LOL. You'd probably need google to search through it.
