linus_torvalds.jpg One of the things I personally am really interested in is the move over to SSD (solid-state drives) disks. I’m a huge believer in reducing latency, and some of the better SSDs are changing the whole game when it comes to access latency, which in turn has potentially big impacts on the kernel — and while they are currently expensive enough to be a pretty minor player, that is certainly looking to change in 2008 and later.
