Linux 3.11-rc5 Celebrates 20 Years Since Windows 3.11
Twenty years ago today Microsoft released Windows 3.11 while today Linus Torvalds released the Linux 3.11-rc5 kernel. He wished he could have released Linux 3.11 kernel final today, but that didn't happen.
On Sunday evening was the announcement by Torvalds of Linux 3.11-rc5.
Sadly, the numerology doesn't quite work out, and while releasing the final 3.11 today would be a lovely coincidence (Windows 3.11 was released twenty years ago today), it is not to be.
For 3.11-rc5, Linus notes in particular the Radeon Dynamic Power Management Changes, which we have been covering extensively on Phoronix.
For more details on the Linux 3.11 kernel read about its many new and exciting features.
