Default What Crack-head thought up Javas version numbers?

We had Java 1.0, then Java 1.1, okay so far... Then we get Java 1.2, but they also started to call it "Java 2". Then we get Java 1.3 which is also called "Java 2" and 1.4 which is also called "Java 2". Then we get 1.5, but then Sun decides to refer to it as "Java 5", and now "Java 6". However internally everything is still "1.5" and "1.6" for some compatibility reason.

Who has been smoking the wacky weed?
