Linux 3.11正式命名为Linux For Workgroups

2013-07-17 09:15

Linus Torvalds 关闭了合并窗口,发布了Linux 3.11-rc1,同时正式将代号从Unicycling Gorilla改为Linux For Workgroups,并递交了一个替代的企鹅吉祥物logo(如图)。

Linux For Workgroups这个代号应该对应的是1990年代初的Windows for Workgroups扩展,微软在1993年8月11日发布了Windows 3.11及其扩展Windows for Workgroups 3.11,企鹅上飘扬着视窗旗帜的恶搞logo不知道会不会遭到微软的反击?

这是从使用GIT后,第二次修改LOGO了,上一次是2.6.29的Tuz interlude


A celebration of Linux's 20th birthday wouldn't be complete without an appearance from Linux creator Linus Torvalds. While Torvalds is famously reluctant to speak, he did take the stage at LinuxCon North America 2011 for a conversation with Greg Kroah-Hartman.Jim Zemlin, CEO of the Linux Foundation, introduced Torvalds and "his junior apprentice" Kroah-Hartman for an informal discussion. They started with a discussion about the 3.0 numbering, and Torvalds mentioned (again) that the reason had nothing to do with features and everything to do with numbering."I think I will call 3.11 Linux for Workgroups."
