There is an old piece of wisdom in IT to avoid the public 'dot 
zero' products so that some-one else gets to be the advance 
guard scout (you know, the one who staggers back to base camp, 
festooned wth arrows in him)

even if a vendor names its initial product 2.1, or 3.0.3, it 
is still a 'dot zero' until eager and inadvertent public 
release (and perhaps unknowing) 'gamma testers' ('They CAN'T 
BE 'beta' testers -- we _did_ a beta') get fried a few times, 
a la Dr Bruce Banner and his Gamma ray accident
