We'll start with the most fun news: the LWN.net 2002 Linux Timeline
now available. For the fifth straight year, we have gone through and
pulled out the most interesting news from the last twelve months. The
result is a concise, and, we hope, fun summary of what's been going on.
As some of you may know, LWN.net will turn five years old next month. In a
bit of early celebration, we have put together the the LWN.net Five-Year Timeline,
giving a condensed view of what has happened while LWN has been watching.
There are now just over 2400 individual LWN.net subscribers. The number
continues its slow, steady growth despite an increase in the number of
expiring subscriptions. With luck, that trend will continue, but we remain
distant from our short-term goal of 4000 subscribers. (Meanwhile, the kind
soul who subscribed "cypherpunks" needs to renew, as it has expired...).
This is the last LWN Weekly Edition for 2002; there will be no Weekly
Edition during the Christmas week. We will return to our regular schedule
on January 2, 2003 (the front page will continue to be updated during
this time). Hopefully our readers will forgive us if we're
still a little hung over at the time.
This has been a challenging year, to say the least.
Through all of our ups and downs, we have continued
producing LWN because we have such a great set of readers.
Best wishes to all of you for great holidays and a happy new year
from the folks at LWN.
