State of the kernel in Fedora 9

Dave Jones. Where to begin? Everything hazy pre-2000, but I got involved in Linux circa 97, and wrote my first kernel patch within a few weeks of installing Linux and learning C. Worked for SuSE from 2000-2002 on various kernel related things, and then moved to Red Hat where I've been Fedora kernel maintainer (and RHEL4 kernel maintainer for a while).
