Ok there Linus Torvalds...can you even say what wiz-bang features of the kernel you are so eager to get on to your tablet? Or do you only care that the number is +1 so surely it must be the best thing since sliced bread.

Indeed, I'd love to be able to run CM9 on my SGS2 with an old GB/2.x kernel. The 3.etc kernels are very much so in their infancy.

So what. What feature of the new kernel are you hoping for? I only care about the Android version...

That is actually quite unlikely and could end up being impossible, since eventually the Android OS is going to require 3.x kernel features, but more likely Sony will simply implement the newer kernel once it is ready for it.

The more important question is so what? The 2.x kernel is a highly effective, efficient kernel with all the features even your average power user is likely to need, and the 3.x line is still a bit rough around the edges, thanks to its infancy.

Well, that was certainly a brief message. Unless my steganography skills are required, that is peculiar. :P
