Ok, so how about releasing Mozilla 1.0 as something other than "1.0" ?

If I remember right the first release of IE was a number higher than the then current version of Netscape. So how about Mozilla 7.0? Then Netscape can also release a Netscape 7.0 based on Mozilla 7.0 and AOL can release an AOL 7.0 utilizing the same.

Microsoft does this kind of number jumping all the time. Why not Mozilla?

Or how about Mozilla 2002? (even if it comes out in 2001 -- ie Microsoft Outlook 2002)

Of course Microsoft's latest trend is to not use numbers at all. If we really want to upset Microsoft, how about calling it Mozilla XP? That way Mozilla could really take advantage of all the XP hype.

Or we could combine them into something really confusing like Mozilla 2002XP v7.0 (similar to Mac OS X 10.1).
