This is patently not true. If chronological order were the only purpose,
there would be no reason not to just use the release date, much like
Ubuntu. Version numbers are for whatever the project decides they're for
- Rockbox decided to use a Major.Minor system to indicate more than just
chronological order. Increasing release numbers indicate chronological
order, but changes in the Major release number will also indicate
significant functional changes.
Is there some reason why "marketing" as you put it is bad? Do we not
want to have such an additional channel of communication with our user base?
