What's in a name? In this case, how easy it is to Google. It's ridiculously awesome that you can enter "2.6.34" for example and pretty much the only thing in the world with that version number is the Linux kernel. Going back to the .0s would make us compete with the Wordpresses of the world again, for a while. Going to 3.x might be worse because that distinctive two-digit marker (2.6, or 2.8) is lost permanently.
