Linus teases he will call kernel Linux for Workgroups

Recommended Posts

A Conversation with Linus Torvalds (Linux.com):
A celebration of Linux's 20th birthday wouldn't be complete without an appearance from Linux creator Linus Torvalds. While Torvalds is famously reluctant to speak, he did take the stage at LinuxCon North America 2011 for a conversation with Greg Kroah-Hartman.Jim Zemlin, CEO of the Linux Foundation, introduced Torvalds and "his junior apprentice" Kroah-Hartman for an informal discussion. They started with a discussion about the 3.0 numbering, and Torvalds mentioned (again) that the reason had nothing to do with features and everything to do with numbering."I think I will call 3.11 Linux for Workgroups."
;) ;) ;)

Win 95 was the first Windows I used, I was a DOS hold out.I'm not sure even then that I would have described using it as a win.

My first MS Win experience was with 3.1 back in '93 or so. Then I went through a computer hiatus all the way till 2000, at which time I inherited and old Pentium I system from my brother. It had 98SE on it. Darn good OS. I miss 98SE sometimes. :D

98se and xp were the crowning achievements of ms. not that 7 isn't good.me (messed-up editionĀ® ) and vista were the pits.to me, debian is the crowning achievement of the linux community - it's uber-stable and available for any (repeat, any) hardware, up to mainframes! it doesn't have the gloss of the newer os's but, functionality and stability count for something. :D
