Linus Torvalds said that the 5.0 version of the Linux kernel will be released someday and it should be meaningless. You have been warned. "This is not to say that the 5.0 version of the Linux kernel has nothing to do. With the old architecture and some other parts being organized, the 4.17 RC1 kernel is now the first in the history of Linux to remove kernels with more code than the number of added code, version 5.0. The same may be true of the Linux kernel.
