    That would have been a good name for Ubuntu 13.10.

    Closing the thread is a bit harsh, let's just lay off the Unity hate. This was never about Unity!

    The new kernel folks, let's focus on that eh?

    Just realized I've been a user since kernel 2.4.0, can't wait for 4.0.

    Is it just me, or does it seem like the Linux release cycle is very short? Is there any concern over stagnated code in parts of the kernel?

    Linus usually names these on a whim, or seemingly so.
    So next will be probably be something like Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
