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."

What a shame! I was SO looking forward to see a kernel programmed in a "special message-passing version of Visual Basic".

Note to zealots: No trolling here, pass along. Linus himself promised: http://lkml.org/lkml/2005/3/2/247
