The 3.0 version of Linux is going to be noticeably faster than 2.6.39 due to changes made, according to Linus Torvalds.Linus created the 3.0 name for the new release and parted ways with the Linux 2.6 kernel series.
The 3.0 will be released close to the 20th anniversary of Linux in August this year. He had said earlier there was no major change in the release, but now it appears there is. In addition to being faster than 2.6.39, the Linux 3.0 kernel will not have a number of features. These include the Reiser4 file-system, the VIA KMS/DRM driver, an accelerated Poulsbo/PowerVR DRM driver, multi-GPU rendering and numerous other items.
