That's part of the confusing thing for new Mac owners. Apple really should add the name description along with the number when people click on the "About this Mac" feature. Since Apple likes the number 10 it's also confusing to new users that 10.4, 10.5, 10.6, etc are completely different versions. For most software the second decimal digits usually mean an update fix and not a completely new version. Apple uses the numbers after the third decimal point to describe the traditional update versions. To make a long story short, new Mac users should just ignore the 10.
