Gentoo "It's been a while since I last reviewed Gentoo Linux because there haven't been too many significant changes in the past few releases. I've been using it as my primary desktop operating system for a year and a half, though, and I've been running my main Web/email/database server on it since October of 2004. There's a reason why I've stayed with it that long, both as a desktop and server OS - and there's also a reason why I'm writing a review of the 2006.0 release after a long hiatus from Gentoo reviews."

It's a perfectly natural version scheme, much better than versions that go from 3.9 -> 3.10 (good at math? not so much) or artifically inflated version numbers.

The period is not a decimal point, it's an arbitrary separator between major and minor version numbers. Just because you already have 10 (0-9) minor versions does not mean that the software is ready for a new major version.

I will, however, heartly agree with you about artifically inflated version... wtf?
