Linux Linux 3.0 has been released. Technically, the release of version 3.0 of the Linux kernel shouldn't be too eventful, since the jump in version number doesn't actually signify any huge change or whatever; the only reason behind the bump to 3.0 is to come to saner version numbering. Still, man, it's like, totally version 3 of the Linux kernel.

Sure there have been kernel releases with more enhancements, but if you care for Xen dom0 then this is totally worth the new major release.
Way faster BTRFS and netfilter rules is also very important for some people.

I always hated the 2.6.32.57-wtf version numbering so this is a great release.

And you can follow Linus' rants on G+ now, which is strange but fun.

Edit: And Happy Birthday, Linux. MS would also like to congratulate. http://www.h-online.com/open/news/item/Linux-receives-20th-birthday...
