This kernel summit decision - which, among other things, said that there would be no 2.7 kernel - surprised almost everybody.
Meanwhile, 184.108.40.206 was the first three-dot kernel release ever; it was rushed out in response to an unpleasant, last-minute bug in 2.6.8.
Am I the only person to have noticed that the ``2.6.''
prefix is now superfluous? Isn't it about time to label the
current kernel ``25-rc3''?
