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."

Sure, Linus can do whatever he feels, but to me a major version number represents massive breaking API changes. <shrug>

Agree, I think linux should keep the old numbers until braking API and/or really large underlying changes.
