I'm afraid that the allure of 3.0 would mean that everyone
would want to get their shiny new subsystem/scheduler
rewrite/bootstrap file format change/whatever incorporated into it,
resulting in a protracted integration period and an unstable system.
According to this line of thought, Linus should simply announce
version 3.0 with no forewarning...

not to mention that people would avoid it becouse it would be a .0 release and therefor perceived as being unstable (and for the reasons that Craig lists, they would probably be right)
