Debian Linux 3.0 released

The volunteers responsible for the Debian edition of Linux released version 3 of the software on Friday, a long-running project code-named "Woody." The new version adds support for the newer 2.4 Linux kernel released about 18 months ago and incorporated into versions of Linux from Red Hat, SuSE and others in 2001.

The new version also for the first time includes support for the KDE graphical interface; it also supports more modern versions of KDE's most widely used alternative, Gnome. Version 3 also works on 11 different processors, including Itanium and the chips in IBM mainframes.
