Windows is still the leader in the desktop OS race, but Microsoft's competitors are not idle. The famous programmer Linus Torvalds announced the completion of the development of the final version of the Linux 5.3 kernel, which received a number of innovations and acquired support for the latest hardware, including AMD's flagship gaming graphics cards.
The list of key features of the Linux 5.3 kernel includes support for Intel Speed Select technology for Xeon server processors, AMD Radeon Navi graphics cards (including the latest Radeon RX5700) at the level of drivers and Zhaoxin x86 processors, and a system resource limiting mechanism when using asymmetric software processor power.
The OS kernel has acquired new and updated drivers for various devices and several dozen system fixes, including the availability of 16 million new IPv4 addresses in the range 0.0.0.0/8 and support for the ACRN hypervisor created for IoT devices. However, developers note that its current version, code-named mainline, is not intended for use in commercial builds of operating systems. The release date for the release version of Linux 5.3 will be announced later.
