    Nowadays, according to places like Google, Microsoft, and everyone that copies this (eg. Mozilla):
    version.version.xx = ???
    version.xx.version = ???
    xx.version.version = added features and bugfixes

    WTF...
    I agree. However it really does seem that every new kernel is not compatible with any previous versions. This is why we have to recompile modules for every minor version anyway ... Imagine if the same graphics drivers work for all kernel version within the same major branch. I think this problem is in fact costing the community a lot...
