A couple of years ago, Linus Torvalds was discussing Linux version
numbers and said, "I think I will call it 3.11 Linux for Workgroups."
It turns out he wasn't joking. With a release candidate of Linux 3.11
now available, Torvalds has actually named the new version of the
kernel "Linux for Workgroups." He even gave it a Windows-themed boot
icon featuring Linux's mascot penguin, Tux, holding a flag emblazoned
with an old Windows logo. The name "Linux for Workgroups" follows such
whimsical past Linux version names as "Pink Farting Weasel," "Killer
Bat of Doom," "Erotic Pickled Herring," and "Jeff Thinks I Should
Change This, But To What?"
