Maybe because stabilizing an os is an harder task.
If we want to use linear incrementing version numbers with no special
meaning, i don't see the point of doing
y = x /10 and not y = x :)
That's maybe why most software on freshmeat are 0.x.
My idea was just to use x.y
where x correspond to a list of features being implemented and y are
minor fixes to these features
1.0 is feature complete (for the feature that we wanted in) and means
tha we (developpers) think it's stable enought for other to use.
So then we can start writing a feature list that will end up being
implemented in 2.0.
that just reflects my opinion, and i won't argue any more on the subject :)
