It’s Pirate’s Day, Matey. Don’t be fooled by it, as was I.

September is a special month in Linux-land. Not only does it bring the autumnal equinox, it is also the birth month of Linux, Happy Birthday to the Linux kernel, Poodle Scout, and The Wayward Word Press.

It is also the month of Talk Like A Pirate Day.

I first encountered Talk Like A Pirate Day last year, just after I started this blog; see Arrr! Linux 2.6.18, Talk Like a Pirate Day: the only day of the year when you can talk like a pirate and not be entirely insane (2006), Yesterday Was Talk Like a Pirate Day (2007), and What Be Yer Favorite Talk Like A Pirate Day Phrase?

I didn’t really understand what was going on, as is clear from the posts I wrote in response: Linus: stick to coding, Patrick is at the helm and Who should be the Pirate of the Caribbean? Linus Torvalds? Johny Depp? Russell Crowe?

So don’t be fooled, as I was.

Linus announced kernel 2.6.18 on last year’s Pirate Day, this year. So drop anchor, and check out the the latest announced by Linus on this year’s Pirates Day, 2.6.23-rc7
