hypnosec writes: After weeks of RC releases and a week's delay Linux 3.9 has finally been made available by Linus Torvalds. Last week Torvalds released the rc8 instead of the Linux 3.9 stating that he wasn’t "comfy" releasing the final version yet and that "another week won’t hurt". Torvalds noted in this week’s announcement that last week has been very quiet as there were not many commits and the ones which were there were "really tiny" which is why he went ahead with the release of Linux 3.9.
I never cheated an honest man, only rascals. They wanted something for
nothing. I gave them nothing for something.
