point-oh

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 13, 2005 04:43 AM
Point-oh releases used to be a significant milestone, implying a degree of completion.

Then came microsoft. By day I maintain MS boxes. Installing version ".0" would be regarded as very, very brave in a production environment. That has happened because of MS rush to market in the past (be fair: they are trying harder now; just not hard enough).

This is why the article that was being commented on referred to a 1.0.0 release as suspect.
