I've heard that they're calling this 'Linux 3.11 for Workgroups'.

Hehe.

You're not too far from the truth, dataguy.

[paritynews.com...]
Linus Torvalds has released Linux 3.11-rc5 yesterday wishing that it would have been a lovely coincidence if he were able to release final Linux 3.11 as on the exact same day 20 years ago Microsoft released Windows 3.11.

“Sadly, the numerology doesn’t quite work out, and while releasing the final 3.11 today would be a lovely coincidence (Windows 3.11 was released twenty years ago today), it is not to be”, notes Torvalds in the release announcement.
