... I don't think Linux Lite 7.4 sounds particularly appealing. ...

I hate to disagree with you, Jerry, but I think Linux Lite 7.3 sounds very appealing. I voted for keeping the current naming/numbering system as it is but would have voted for just numbering as it is now without any names if I had the choice. That would keep it simple as in "Simple, fast, free."  8)

Jerry,

I just re-read the original post and realized that the schedule seems to reflect 3 new releases a year (every 4 months) instead of 2 (as was done before).  Is that correct?  Or did you mean to schedule at 6 months intervals for 2 releases per year?

What I've tried to do is space it out evenly between the last release (2.2) and the next LTS. Also taking into consideration other factors that affect release dates I haven't listed.

I've removed the other 2 suggestions (Planets, Periodic Table) for a change of name for the Codebase. Since we started with Gems we will continue with them. The Thread asks for input on version, not Codenames. Cheers.

I agree with Coastie, above. So far the codename and number of release works well... if it ain't broken, don't fix it, right?

I think LinuxLite 7.2 or 7.4 sounds very appealling, as well.

So I have voted for this option.

Yes I voted for the familiar numbering system it's easy and most people with computers feel used to it with other systems, there is no need to introduce more complications. LinuLite 8.7 sounds good and will show endurance.

Anyway LL is going to be around a long...long time.... we might need big numbers :)

Roman Numerals = Only old folks like us can read Roman Numerals. My grandkids can't.
Words for Numbers = Turns off the younger generation who lives on leet speak. wrd 4 a nmbr?
Binary = Need I say anything? You got to be kidding me.
Letters =Maybe. KISS. But only so many till 1A or AB.
Colors  = only so many, than you have to start going into "candy apple red"
Current Number Scheme = Maybe, KISS. Hard to run out of numbers.

so I am not voting. Just pointing things out.  We are up to number 14 now, Lean and mean.

I like the Ubuntu style release numbers of [year].[month]. It quickly reminds you how old the release is and when it was released. If you use the common software version scheme then you need some kind of crosswalk document to keep track.

Current Scheme or Roman numerals,

The company I work for has started to switch everything over to LL from an all windows enviroment to LL for work stations and CentOs for servers and wouldn't have a issue with either has both scheme's are easy to understand.

By two cents worth

I like the current numbering system, it is easy to understand, and doesn't take ages to type out if you are having to write it or enter it into a terminal for some reason.
