    If you have code that depends on the version number, we advise that you update to allow for the new value.
    If you have code that depends on a verison number, you're already part of the problem.

    If they want to impress us, then surely they should turn it up to 11. Anyone can turn things up to 10

    apparently a 'depreciated version API' will report that Windows 10 is version 6.3
    Then can I trust that Windows 10 will also be honest and report itself as version 8.2? ;o)

    Version numbers mean hardly anything these days and I blame chrome for that. full numbers used to mean big change and .1 meant small change.
