    Now!?

    I don't care about schemes either, but at least they could fix the power bug before making such a massive increment.

    We'll keep monitoring the highly-active mailing list to see what is reached... This is also really great timing because, errr, just wait and see.
    Steam will be merged into Linux? ;>

    old interfaces always get deprecated and removed in linux kernel.

    there is nothing groundbreaking to justify a switch from 2.6 to 2.8 or whatever. i think somebody has a feeling of middle-age crisis and doesn't want to go over 40

    naming the kernel by date would be pretty logical, but it would make it harder to figure out which release is official/stable and which is not. and it would confuse a lof of userspace scripts during transition.

    One suggestion to Kernel 3.x

    Please make the development branch splitted. Kernel 3.x can drop supports for old stack/framework/structure/drivers and make code clean and robust. Those old stuffs can still get support from 2.6.40+.

    The hype of this one is going over my head. I've never gotten excited about arbitrary version numbering systems.

    It reminds me a bit of when Slackware jumped from 4.0 to 7.0.

    Hell, I wouldn't care if it was just an integer that started at 0 and incremented with every release.
