Linux kernel 5.8 :ONE OF THE BEST VERSIONS

For Linus Torvalds, creator of Linux, the latest kernel of the open source operating system is “the best version ever released”. That's almost 800,000 new lines of code and 14,000 changed files that are part of the Linux 5.8 kernel update. About 20% of the kernel has been modified.

Linus Torvald comments: "With version 5.8, we have no signs of this kind of problem that would make the version bigger - there is just a lot of development in there". While this version is large, reducing the size of the kernel to 4.6 GB, it is nevertheless lighter than version 4.12 of the kernel, “the undisputed size champion”. However, there is nothing to indicate that this version is less powerful due to its size.

This new version of the kernel updates the functions of use of Microsoft's Hyper-V virtualization platform, Arm chips, the Direct Rendering Manager (DRM) subsystem, networking, drivers, the Microsoft's exFAT files become free, etc.
