    Correct 100%!

    I was starting to think no one could answer that quiz. I was going to post the answers this afternoon, but you answered. Great job.

    Yeah, it would be funnier if someone answered wrong. Apple is not awesome enough to do something like that.

    Your poll at the top, would you consider 3.11 when asking that question? It is still in development....

    True, 3.11 is in development, but 3.1, 3.2, ...... are done. In my opinion, 3.x is better and more stable than 2.6. I wanted to see what other Linux users thought about that. For instance, in the 2.6 series, I had many issue with my Wifi device among some other small issues.

    Yeah, I am forced to use 3.11 for my wifi card. I don't know, with the Nvidia 3.10 issues I am unsure what to think. 2.6 had issues also.

    Currently, I use 3.8.x on my laptop running Ubuntu and 3.6.x on my Raspberry Pi system running a Raspbian derivative. (I am currently making my own Linux operating system; that would be the Raspbian derivative).

    My Android system uses 2.6.x without issues, but Android 2.3 does not use Linux kernel 3.x.
