Dozens of network-attached storage (NAS) servers and other consumer appliances are about to gain mainline kernel and Debian GNU/Linux support. The 2.6.25 kernel, currently in the final stages of testing, will support Marvell's Feroceon micro-architecture and "Orion" SoCs, with Debian support close behind, sources say.

Yesterday, Linus Torvalds launched release candidate 7 (rc7) for the 2.6.25 kernel, commenting, "Give it a good testing, because we're hopefully now well on our way towards that eventual real 2.6.25 release!" The comment suggests the newest kernel could well launch this week.
