Oxygen Version Name

Post by alexey » Sat Feb 11, 2006 12:15 pm

Hello oxygen team,

May I notice you to have a version number with the year rather than with a number like XMLSpy
or XMLStudio.

Oxygen 2006 is more commercial than Oxygen 7 ...

Best wishes,

Alexey

Microsoft started this "version = year" convention with Windows 95. It seems more "commercial" only by association with major Windows software like Office 2005, etc... I'm afraid that calling oXygen "oXygen 2006" would give some people the idea that it was a Windows-only program. In the Macintosh and Linux worlds, we are perfectly happy with integer version numbers.

So as a user I vote to keep the status quo.
