This is what I call the "Paris Syndrome", a mild form of the "Stockholm
On a more serious note, I do not insist on the particular use of the x.0
convention. I find it elegant and it gives a nice justification, for example,
why gcc stable releases always starts at .1. FWIW gcc started the new
numbering scheme at version 5, and it already the seventh release where this
numbering schme is used.
In Fedora Rawhide (to be Fedora 34) the current version of gcc is 11.0.0. That
immediately shows that this is not the stable version. The first stable
version will be 11.1.
