Linux Kernel 2.6.0 was released about forty minutes ago. The last major stable release was in 2001. I will be upgrading in a couple days just to make sure there are no quirks to be wary of. If you plan on upgrading, and you use Debian, be sure to install the `module-init-tools` package; the old kernel management tools do not work with newer kernels and visa versa. The package is a part of the unstable branch. So, if you are using stable, you will need to add the following source to your `/etc/apt/sources.list` file:

`deb stable module-init-tools`
