One thing that was kind of exasperating about Ubuntu was the (weird( version numbers. The successor to 6.06 was 6.10? The next version was 7.04? Huh?
Fortunately, somebody finally blogged about this: What’s With the Ubuntu Version Number Scheme? -- Johnny’s Thoughts
No big secret: the first number is the year and the second is the month. So 7.04 translates as 2007 and April or month 04.
Now I can sleep at night.
