Will Linus Give New Year Gifts?

After failing to give Christmas presents few weeks ago, most people are expecting Linus to give the presents before this year ends which should happened around the next 50 hours (at the time i write this post). Many people are expecting the final 2.6.24 release as it should have been released by now if it wasn't late and there's no show stopper bugs around. So far, there's 247 oops in the RC release of 2.6.24, according to Kernel OOPS BugCount, which is the biggest since 2.6.17 was tracked (i don't know whether this number has dropped or not, but my guest is that this number reflected the oops counted during the first RC release and it will be updated when the final 2.6.24 released).
