First of all, that wasn't missed. It was quite intentional. I am 
underscoring the difference between Linux and *BSD.

Second, I would argue with the assessment Linux doesn't do a "major 
release" until it is "arguably better than the previous version," and 
that this somehow is in contrast to *BSD.  This is an ambiguous 
statement, at best. Define "major" and define "better."
