New Linux Kernel

Linux Kernel 3.0 rc1 goes official today. In the words of Torvaldus:
"I decided to just bite the bullet, and call the next version 3.0. It will get released close enough to the 20-year mark, which is excuse enough for me, although honestly, the real reason is just that I can no longer comfortably count as high as 40."
What major changes can you expect? Absolutely none besides the shiny new number.


  1. It's Torvalds. And there are new features in the new kernel.

  2. Ah, good catch. I promise your not going to find any other typos on this site though! Yes, there are some new "things" - but as far as I am aware, it is only the usual new drives and such, in particular support for some AMD and SandyBridge etc.

  3. It's "you're" and "drivers." You need to go back and review grammar 101 and get an editor.

  4. Anonymous and persistent. I like that about you. "your" was intentional, "drives" was not - The later kinda making my point. :)

    And I thought I should point out: you should never start a sentence with "and".
