where to find summary of kernel?

hi, trying to figure out the diff between 2.4.xx vs 2.6.x
was reading the "change log" from, but it seems like its written for developers rather then for users.

anyone got a link or something to show me if there's a summary of a kernel? (so i can judge if its worth for me to upgrade to 2.6)
