Oh boy, we get a meaningless (but much appreciated) number roll today (I hope). And lest anyone think otherwise, I want to thank those that make Solus possible. Long ago, in a galaxy far away, I did some personal internet projects, and contributed to free source software (including the popular 'sudo' command). I also had an opportunity with work where I was in town with Todd and took him out to dinner (on the company's dime, since sudo had allowed significant operational security efficiencies for our data center).
Release points will probably always be important (maybe not so much to those using the distributions but more to outsiders and/or newcomers). Those of us living in the eco-system, probably appreciate major releases of included software more than the distro numbers. Even so, I admit to an expected thrill at seeing 'Solus 4.0' on the boot list.
