Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Well actually, Windows has version numbers too but it is not shown to the user unless you ask for it (eg. winver), but to be fair, the version of the linux kernel is usually not shown to the user either unless you ask for it (eg. uname).
