207First we have <c>aa-sources</c>. This is Andrea Arcangeli's patch set.
208Andrea is known as an amazing coder by many other kernel hackers. His
209kernel patch set has some of the most aggressively tuned VM (Virtual
210Memory) patches known to mankind.
211</p>
212
213<p>
214It also provides User Mode Linux support (check out our
215<uri link="/doc/en/uml.xml">UML Guide</uri> for more information) and
216the latest TUX Webserver (an in-kernel webserver).

220If you have Memory Management troubles with other kernels,
221<c>aa-sources</c> can be your solution. If you want to optimize Linux's
222Memory Management for your system, <c>aa-sources</c> is <e>definitely</e>
223what you need.

229for more information about all the patches in these kernel sources.

233Andrea has not been maintaining his patchsets recently, and as a result of
234this, this kernel is a bit out of date and may be removed from Portage soon.
