Linux Well this makes a change. Linus Torvalds has announced that the next version of the Linux Kernel release is to be '3.0'. "I decided to just bite the bullet, and call the next version 3.0. It will get released close enough to the 20-year mark, which is excuse enough for me, although honestly, the real reason is just that I can no longer comfortably count as high as 40."

To you perhaps, but not to everyone subscribes to that view. Some prefer not to give an particular meaning to "major" and "minor" version numbers other than, well, it's a new version.

I've always preferred to bump the major version for ANY change in features, no matter the size or scope, and the minor version if only bug-fixes were done. That's perhaps the most common form of version number handling I've seen among the programmers I associate with. But to each their own... I just find it silly that a "mature" product with more than a decade of work can still be at version 0.xxx. ;)
