Linux version dilemma: Linus Torvalds is "running out of fingers and toes"

Linus Torvalds, creator and curator of the Linux kernel, has a quandary on his hands: Should he stick to Linux’s long-time tradition of massive, multple-decimal-point version numbers, or should he abandon them in favor of shorter, more easily distinguishable major versions? The problem at hand is the imminent arrival of Linux 3.20. Unlike most major pieces of software, a new version of the Linux kernel is released every 10 weeks or so.
