What's up in Linux-Kernel land
This talk gives an overview of recent and current developments in the Linux kernel; it will discuss what major changes the latest kernel versions brought, what the next version will bring, and what the Linux developers are working on for future releases.

Monsters, Ghosts, and Bugs: How to choose a kernel
Most users and developers don’t think too closely about what kernel is running, yet the kernel is a vital piece of software. There’s many choices of what kernel to run, from a well tested enterprise kernel to forward looking community distributions to running your own compiled version. Each of these options has a use case and the choice of kernel can have a big impact on your system. So how do you choose? The focus of this talk is the many ways a kernel can be maintained and what it means for consumers of that kernel. Emphasis will be given to the trade offs of features vs. security vs. ease of management and mistakes you can make when maintaining a kernel.
