haha it's just silly marketing - we wouldn't want to use a 2007 distro in 2008 right? that would be so lame! haha

seriously though the name has no real relevance to the quality of the distro and I know this - however I don't like the idea of linux distros getting so caught up in marketing that they have to add to a year to seem "newer". Especially since "newer" is not necessarily "better" ;) Again - I'm glad mandriva is still going - mandrake was my first linux distro and I'm glad there are still options out there.
