From Dr Dobbs’ article Vanilla Linux 2.6.35 goes Turbo

“Straight from the hands of Linus Torvalds himself this week comes the 2.6.35 version of the ‘vanilla’ mainstream kernel of the Linux operating system. In slightly less than three months since its 2.6.34 predecessor, the new version comes charged with power management features and architectural restructuring designed to allow it to take advantage of the ‘turbo’ features in the latest line of AMD processors”

“With quad-core processing power and upwards becoming the norm in the modern high-end desktop machine, the new kernel has undergone network code optimization for operation in a multi-core world.”
