Microsoft announced today they are changing their name to Macrosoft

To celebrate, they have also implemented a new licensing constraint on applications built with their popular .NET framework. The new licensing requires that they have rights to both name your application and issue version numbers.

To accomodate this they are implementing a new algorithm for revision numbers using PI in lieu of the boring increment-by-1 method. Minor version changes will now use the Hebrew alphabet instead of plain old decimals.
