I'm not sure whether you're agreeing or disagreeing with me. In any event, my point was that the numbering is VERY IMPORTANT from an end-user perspective. Yes, it's a marketing game, but your examples tend to reinforce that statement.

But on the other hand Mozilla is well below the radar for the typical end-user. They're aware of Netscape, which continues to use the old Netscape numbering scheme. The typical end-user doesn't know about and doesn't care about Mozilla numbering schemes. I don't know whether this is good or bad, but that's the reality. The question is, should the Mozilla community care?
