No more BitKeeper for Linux kernel use

Linus has decided to no longer use BitKeeper for the management of the Linux kernel deveopment because of recent changes that will mean the freer version will be limited and will not meet the requirements of many Linux kernel programmers.

It's been in use since 2002 and has done the job it was implemented for very well but it is time to change. There are alternatives that are being looked at and the change should not have much of an impact once people are used to using the new system.
