Submission + - Linus Torvalds Looks To End Linux 2.6 Kernel (phoronix.com)

An anonymous reader writes: With the Linux 2.6 kernel set to begin its 40th development cycle and the Linux kernel nearing its 20th anniversary, Linus Torvalds has expressed interest today in moving away from the Linux 2.6.x kernel version. Instead he's looking to change things up by releasing the next kernel as Linux version 2.8 or 3.0. "The voices in my head also tell me that the numbers are getting too big. I may just call the thing 2.8.0...So I'm toying with 3.0 (and in that case, it really would be "3.0", not "3.0.0" — the stable team would get the third digit rather than the fourth one."
