Linux turns 5

Earlier this year I noticed that Bash released version 5 . Now Linux turns 5 as well. While Linus did say  "that '5.0' doesn't mean anything more than that the 4.x numbers started getting big enough that I ran out of fingers and toes," it's still a round number and makes me think back about the various version numbers of the kernel that I've used over the years.
