    This is going to be the coolest version of Linux:

    5.12 = 2^9 / 10^2

    ...until 10.24, which has an even nicer symmetry.

    One word: Illuminati.

    Yeah, I know, but both:
    Code:
    CLANG+BTRFS+512git=FUBAR Disk
    &
    GCC+EXT4+512git=FUBAR Disk
    Makes me wonder what it is about 512 that's making disks go FUBAR.

    The Linux 5.12 merge window was off to a rough start due to winter storms preventing Linus Torvalds from merging changes for nearly one week, but in any case he appears to have caught up and the Linux 5.12-rc1 kernel is expected later today to end out the merge window. Here is a look at the many exciting changes coming for Linux 5.12.
