Blame it on Netscape.  No, go ahead and blame it on Microsoft.  You
put out software that's alpha quality and call it "release", then you
put out a patch (i.e., version 1.01, then version 1.02 a few days
later).  Then you call a version "gold".  MySQL's alpha versions are
regularly of higher quality than those other companies "gold" versions.
So people's perceptsions get a little bit whacked.
