So lets stick with colors, or city names without extensions.

This is similar to what RedHat does (or used to do).

It was pretty straight forward:  "Enigma" was a known release, and the
name could be used interchangeably for the version number.

On the console, the prompt was something like:

RedHat 7.2 (Enigma)
Login:

So for us, why not:

openSUSE 11.2 (Asparagus)
Login:

And something similar on the default *dm login screens?

No fuss, no muss, and it doesn't overcomplicate things, which I think we
might be doing here.


I thought the decision was to drop Major.Minor numbering because they
are misleading? May have misunderstood.

Cheers
