except for registry folders being called hives. that one's not because of application compatibility. that's because a windows dev wanted to be a dick to another dev who had a fear of bees.
long post about android version history, probably bad for screen readers Show more
okay i was gonna write a long rant about android's version numbering system being shit but here's a short version:
android 1 went all the way to 1.6.
2 went to 2.3.7, 3 went to 3.2.6, etc. there were a bunch of minor versions.
you can actually see the version numbers slow down after 4
4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.3, 4.0.4, 4.1, 4.1.1, 4.1.2, 4.2.1, 4.2.2, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.4, 4.4.1, 4.4.2, 4.4.3, 4.4.4 - seventeen versions
5.0, 5.0.1, 5.0.2, 5.1, 5.1.1 - five versions
6.0, 6.0.1 - TWO versions
why do they push major versions so frequently now? what the fuck??
new in android 5: SELinux, ART replaces dalvik (this is huge), material design UI, multiple user accounts, redesigned notifications, fifteen new languages, customisable notification priorities,
new in android 6: doze. fingerprint scanner support. Renamed "Priority" mode to "Do Not Disturb" mode. app draw is vertical instead of horizontal.
why the FUCK is there such a huge difference betwen 4 and 5 but barely anything between 5 and 6. why did they just decide "nahhh minor versions are for fucking nerds" and constantly push new major versions
