Re: [ide-dev] Dropping the release names (Neon, Oxygen) from user downloads

May I suggest dropping the "20" and just go with a 2-digit year?

Eclipse 16.0
Eclipse 16.1
Eclipse 16.2
Eclipse 17.0
Eclipse 17.1
Eclipse 17.2
Eclipse 18.0
Eclipse 18.1
Eclipse 18.2

IMHO, the 20 is unnecessary and adds clutter. I also think the year scheme feels dated. Yes, I do not worry about the year 2100. :)

Hi all, 

In thinking about the Eclipse IDE more as a product, I want to toss up the suggestion of dropping the release names i.e Neon, Oxygen from anything user facing i.e. download site, etc. 

The summary is that they unnecessarily add confusion for anyone not intimately familiar with Eclipse. I suggest replacing the releases simply with the year they go out. Perhaps with some convention for intermediate releases.
