Major version? Why 4.4 instead of 11.0?

by Rusty Shackleford    Sep 5, 2013, 9:27 AM

In the rest of the computing world a MAJOR revision change to software results in an increase of the MAJOR digit of the version number. Therefore with "K" being a 11th digit of the alphabet of the language Android's naming is following that means this version of Android OS ought to be 11.0. It sure would make life easier handling these OSes if Google followed this basic convention.
