1511 - CentOS or Windows?

Post by jrawle » 2015/12/19 21:56:42

Has anyone else noticed that the version/build number (or whatever it is) for CentOS 7.2, 1511, is the same as the current version of Windows 10? How about that for a coincidence!

Merry Christmas everyone!

It's not coincidence. Windows 10 uses the same version numbering scheme as Ubuntu and CentOS now. (YYMM resp. YY.MM, so 1511 simply means "November 2015")

Thanks for that, I didn't know it was the date! And an in-built millennium (or rather century) bug!

It is still a coincidence, just not such a big one!
