Linux Kernel 3.0 is on it way

Linus Torvalds has officially announced that the new Linux Kernel will have a version of 3.0 and not 2.8. The release is expected around the 20 year mark for the kernel.

So what are the big changes?

NOTHING. Absolutely nothing. Sure, we have the usual two thirds driver
changes, and a lot of random fixes, but the point is that 3.0 is
*just* about renumbering, we are very much *not* doing a KDE-4 or a
Gnome-3 here. No breakage, no special scary new features, nothing at
all like that…

Pretty much this is just a renumbering of the kernel.
