LXer: Thunderbird jumps from 3.1 to 5.0 (just like Firefox's leap from 3.6 to 4.0 to 5.0)


Published at LXer:

Mozilla has number-creep on the brain. After dealing with Firefox 3.6.17's abrupt end of life in favor of 4.0, and then 4.0's deprecation in favor of 5.0 (and yes, I had to change repositories every time because Linux in general and Debian in particular doesn't force new software on users), now I learn that Thunderbird is jumping from 3.1 to 5.0.

They should have made it 11.0. 11.0 is clearly louder than 5.0.

Satan edition? 666 is the number of a man. Unless you want take the position that 666 in revelation is a mistake, it should be 616....then 666 is just the 'weight of gold recived by solomon' (in talents...and its a stupidly large weight).

Ok, 616, but it has to be a large number and associated with Satan.
