Torvalds frustrated at missing simultaneous release

Filed under
Linux

Linus Torvalds has issued release candidate five for Linux 3.11, but is a little upset with the fact the final release missed a serendipitous anniversary.

The date in question is August 11th, 1993, as it was on that day that Windows 3.11 emerged blinking and howling into the world.

Torvalds liked the idea that Linux 3.11 would debut on that day, but has written “Sadly, the numerology doesn't quite work out, and while releasing the final 3.11 today would be a lovely coincidence (Windows 3.11 was released twenty years ago today), it is not to be.”
