Interesting stuff !

Linux kernel 6.0 is available for download from Linus Torvald’s git repo for those who like to compile their own kernels. For everyone else, you’ll need to wait until your distro’s maintainer upgrades the kernel to version 6.0 before attempting to install it.

“As is hopefully clear to everybody, the major version number change is more about me running out of fingers and toes than it is about any big fundamental changes. But of course there’s a lot of various changes in 6.0 – we’ve got over 15k non-merge commits in there in total, after all, and as such 6.0 is one of the bigger releases at least in numbers of commits in a while,” said Linus Torvalds.
