+ - Linus Torvalds Says Linux 4.0 could be out in Three years-> 2

darthcamaro (735685) writes "The wait between Linux 2.x and 3.x was a long one but the wait to Linux 4? Well that's will only be a matter of three years according to Linus Torvalds.

"It's just mentally much easier for people to remember the small number," Torvalds said during the LinuxCon conference in San Diego today. "We'll do 4.0 in three years maybe when the sub numbers have grown in the 20's and our feeble brains can't handle it."

      Well I think what they will do is:
      Linux 3.x
      Linux 4.x
      Linux 95
      Linux 98
      (One that no one wants to talk about)
      Linux XP
      And then back down to single numbers again.
