It is not crazy but not everyone has run Ubuntu or knows how they work 
with versions.
Redhat has a completely different pattern which is different from Centos 
and Fedora.

Windows might in fact be crazy and if you have ever had to support 
Windows users you would know that it is sometimes hard to get a straight 
answer about versions from end-users since they confuse MS-Office with 
Operating Systems in an enterprise setting where the server is running 
Windows-2008 supporting Windows-7 desktops using MS-Office 2011.

I hope that my suggestions for amending the docs will help clarify the 
version pattern to new System Administrators who are just trying to be 
comfortable with the pattern of releases.
