Whats the difference to some other number?

Ah that. Of what use would that information be? I cant think of any. And
if someone is as braindead as that and has a problem with numbers that
do not correlate directly with a date i dont think your scheme would
help very much...

I dont think this is true. In the past we always had bad releases
because someone f***ed up / something vital was FUBAR. We have that now
and we will have that in the future. I remember 5.3, 6.1, 7.1, 8.2 and
more. All utterly broken piles of dogpoo...

An no one forces them to do so. SUSE users have two years before they
"have" to update.
