Linus Torvalds 關閉了合併視窗,釋出了Linux 3.11-rc1,同時正式將代號從Unicycling Gorilla改為Linux For Workgroups,並遞交了一個替代的企鵝吉祥物logo(如圖)。

Linux 3.11正式命名為Linux For Workgroups

Linux For Workgroups這個代號應該對應的是1990年代初的Windows for Workgroups擴充套件,微軟在1993年8月11日釋出了Windows 3.11及其擴充套件Windows for Workgroups 3.11,企鵝上飄揚著視窗旗幟的惡搞logo不知道會不會遭到微軟的反擊?

這是從使用GIT後,第二次修改LOGO了,上一次是2.6.29的Tuz interlude

這個改變不是一時的心血來潮,是2011年就有想法了的:

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."
