What, you dictate how software should be labeled? MS has named their software things like "2000" and "Vista", you should complain and tell them to call it a proper number in the form of X.Y...

Oh and while you're at it, tell the wine ppl they should've released ages ago. And tell the gnomes to call their 2.29 release 2.30 'beta' as they don't comply with the proper numbering either. Same for the kernel, by the way. They call beta's "RC" while it's completely unstable! Horrible!

Nobody follows the exact same rules, so stop complaining about that. KDE told everyone it was meant for developers to start building on, and users to test and check out where they were. Some things were ready (like most of the edu apps, games, some utils). Other things were not (like Plasma). Again, sorry we didn't write that properly in the release announcement. I'm to blame there, as one of the peeps who wrote it. We did write it in the beta's, blogs and everywhere else - so the distro's have no excuse for shipping it to unsuspecting users. Blame them. And get over it, finally.
