Linux version 3.0. up todate

Linus Torvalds, the initiator and manager of the Linux kernel, has been officially call the next version of Linux as Linux 3.
"I decided to be reckless and started calling the next version 3.0. It will come out pretty close with the celebration of 20 years, that's enough excuse for me, although to be honest, the real reason is that I can not feel comfortable counting to 40," said Linus.
Figures 40 is referred to Linus is the latest Linux version that should touch the number 2.6.40.
As the main organizer kernel, Torvalds does seem to have some 'right prerogratif'. Included in this set a new numbering. But this time he was sure his decision will be welcomed by the community.
Unfortunately, said Torvalds, scripts and rules to the Makefile can not be arbitrarily dictated. As a result, the kernel is technically will have the names 3.0.0-RC1 (RC1 is a release candidate, because it is still not final). Torvalds said there is still time 6-7 weeks to perform cleaning and other scripts. Hence, in the final release of the Linux kernel that can be named 3.0.
