Ubuntu 12.10 To Feature Linux Kernel 3.5

There is a small possibility that it could be powered by Linux kernel 3.6

The newest operating system from Canonical, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin), is shipping with Linux kernel 3.2, but the upcoming Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) could arrive with Linux kernel 3.5.

Canonical has surprised people with the decision to provide a default PAE kernel with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin), but the company has never been too bold in regard to new Linux kernel versions.

According to Michael Larabel from phoronix.com, the upcoming Ubuntu 12.10, that will arrive on October 18th, will probably feature Linux kernel 3.5.

According to Ubuntu developers, they might even integrate Linux kernel 3.6, if it will be stable and trustworthy at that time.

Ubuntu Developer Summit for Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal), the upcoming version of the popular Ubuntu operating system, is taking place these days in Oakland, USA, between 7 and 11 May.
