It's a "keeping up with the Joneses" thing.  Other places bumped up to the
next major, so...  I can see the 1.2 to 2.0 thing in the kernel, but all
these distros that are at major release 7 are just silly.

Besides, KRUD has them beat as far as big numbers.  This month's release
is over 20 million: 20001002  ;-)
