If you can't differ between two programs with *different* version
numbers, you take away the version number to make it easier to
differentiate?! Huh? Reality check, please?

If you're serious, you should tie program version numbers to OS version
numbers, since those particular users won't understand the difference

Sorry for sounding sarcastic,
