Unfortunately, the version number matters a lot to "d'oh" users.

Microsoft realised this and ramped up the version number of Word to coax users from Wordperfect.

Nowadays, the version number is virtually meaningless (due to Microsoft). Or at least - the bit after the first period is pointless as far as the public/press are concerned.

One should perhaps adopt the methods books use - just go by edition... So even a bugfixed update warrants an increment. Mozilla, with a new build every night should already be at the 500th edition or something like that ;)

That would really fox 'em :)
