Linux Well this makes a change. Linus Torvalds has announced that the next version of the Linux Kernel release is to be '3.0'. "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."

Breakage anyway

Even just changing version number without any other big changes is likely to cause some problems. Any poorly written script that tries to check if kernel is newer than 2.x will break.
