| Is it true you still use 2.4 kernels?
| In some places, sure.

| I don't know how it's partitioned out. When you think of Google, you think of

| Today, Google announced a partial solution to this problem that seems obvious 
| in retrospect: Google is now offering the "Google Ajax Libraries API," which 
| allows sites to download five well-known Ajax libraries (Dojo, Prototype,
