    Phoronix: Say Hello To Linux 3.0; Linus Just Tagged 3.0-rc1

    No. It's a one man show and Michael usually does fairly well with typos/spelling/grammar. Anyway.. thanks for registering just to post that!

    i feel i am reading about the " english queen mum "
    may be this dude is too much keeping himself under the lights just like bill gates .
    by the way that looks marketing and does not show any change in the philosophy of linux .

    How this compares to this:

    So what are the big changes?

    NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. Sure, we have the usual two thirds driver changes, and a lot of random fixes, but the point is that 3.0 is *just* about renumbering, we are very much *not* doing a KDE-4 or a Gnome-3 here. No breakage, no special scary new features, nothing at all like that. We've been doing time-based releases for many years now, this is in no way about features. If you want an excuse for the renumbering, you really should look at the time-based one ("20 years") instead.
    It's just practical decision. 2.6.40 simply sucked.
