Linux Kernel 2.6.34 Released

After about three months of development, finally the final version of the next Linux Kernel has been released by Linus Torvalds. What i think very interesting in this release is that it incorporates GPU Switching feature which enables Linux users who have 2 GPUs to switch over. This feature are already implemented in Windows 7 by default, but it's now being merged in Linux Kernel as an official support.

Please note that users will still require to restart their X Server in order to switch between GPUs, but i think it's better than having one GPU detected only (usually only Intel are detected).
