But I wish Linus would have given some insight as to what the number 20 is too big for. My own mind has no trouble grasping 21 (or 321) releases of something.
To avoid that, Linus is just inventing a new numbering system rather than use the decimal system that people know so well. (I.e. he plans 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, ... 3.20, 4.0, 4.1, etc. whereas the decimal 3, 4, 5, ... 23, 24, 25 makes more sense to me).
