    Subject[OT] Please don't call it 3.0!! (was Re: The reason to call it 3.0 is the desktop (was Re: [OT] 2.6 not 3.0 - (NUMA)))

    So what's the verdict? Are we calling it 3.0 or 2.6? Who am I to say
    this, but I really feel calling it kernel 3.0 is not fully justified. We
    should stick with the 2.x series until major ABI or API changes break the
    C library in massive ways, at which point we increment the major version
    number.

    Although its tempting to appeal to the mainstream by inflating the version
    number artificially (what's Redhat up to now? 8.0?? sheesh!!), we have to
    respect ourselves as developers. Why call it 3.0, other than to stroke
    our own egos?
