Go crazy, folks! On Thursday, July 21, Linus Torvalds put a stake in the heart of the "bignum days" for the 2.6 kernel and took the wraps off Linux 3.0. While not a huge leap from 2.6.39, the release does have some changes worth eyeballing.

As mentioned at the start of the cycle for this kernel, the 3.0 milestone is not about major new features in the Linux kernel. Instead, the version bump was about getting rid of the increasingly large minor version numbers (like "2.6.39.x") and to acknowledge the kernel's 20th anniversary this year. Also because the voices in Linus' head told him it was time for a version bump. Good thing Linus listens to the voices, eh?

Now that we've gotten the big disclaimer out of the way, there have been a number of changes in Linux 3.0 worth taking note of if you're interested in Linux. If you've read this far, I'm guessing that you are.
