Linspire The 5.0.59 version of Linspire was released in March of 2005. A new version 5.0.347 is now available for immediate download. This version does not add any new major functionality, as this is mainly a bug fix release that resolves some problems with the previous release. The Insiders are still beta testing new versions of Linspire that contain new drivers, new features, etc.

cause it is not decimal math, like you said 0.347 < 0.59, cause if you look, there is no 5.0.347 math number, is:

5 = 5
0 = 0
347 > 59

It's the one thing about Free-Software/hacker versioning that is counter-intuitive. Unless you're you're familiar with it, good luck in understanding it.

I've always liked the versioning we use on Unisys our mainframes:

1st full version release: 1R0
1st revision of 1R0: 1R1
1st beta of 1R2: 1R2B1
2nd beta of 1R2: 1R2B2
2nd revision of 1R0: 1R2
3rd revision of 1R0: 1R3
4th revision of 1R0: 1R4
1st local mod to 1R4: 1R4A
2nd local mod to 1R4: 1R4B
2nd full version release: 2R0
1st revision of : 2R1

etc.

The OS we're running is EXEC 47R2A, which is the "A" local modification of standard release 47 Revision 2.
