No Kernel 5.0! Linus Torvalds Prefers Releasing it as Kernel 4.17   

Linus Torvalds has announced the release of Linux Kernel 4.17. Take a look at main new features in the latest kernel release.

A new Linux Kernel has been released today and unlike the expectations, it is not called Kernel 5.0.

That was what happened for 4.0, after all."
