Why identify it with any extra label?
Any version identification is an internal thing that a utility can display, if required.

I think that OED more comments on the common use of literal(ly) in a non-literal context, rather than suggest that it is in any way correct.
"In recent years an extended use of literally (and also literal) has become very common, where literally (or literal) is used deliberately in non-literal contexts, for added effect, as in they bought the car and literally ran it into the ground. This use can lead to unintentional humorous effects (we were literally killing ourselves laughing) and is not acceptable in formal contexts, though it is widespread."
I suspect that "used deliberately in non-literal contexts" is a polite way of saying: used erroneously ...LOL.
You are using an American dictionary to be pedantic about English ?
Until quite recently, I had a DEC LA120 still working in our computer room. It didn't do anything of any use, but I just liked to have it sitting there looking all retro and occasionally printing something trivial. Unfortunately, at the last office move, some *%#^ went and sold it for next to nothing - I could have killed them when I found out what they'd done.
My favourite pieces of hardware were a USB-UltraSCSI adapter made by a company called Ratoc Systems, and a reliable SCA80-LVD/SE UltraSCSI adapter (so I could connect a hot-swap drive to the USB adapter) made by a company called CS Electronics. They allowed me to plug a failed hotswap SCSI drive from the servers into a PC's USB port, and (assuming only a partial failure) recover/repair content using standard PC recovery tools. Both rarely get used these days, but were an absolute life-saver many times in the past.
Isn't the whole point of the exercise (if we can assume it's for real) to placate the "who move my cheese" group? Providing yet another alternative menu is probably not going to solve that problem.
The real haters will still find something to complain about, but I suspect that the majority of desktop/laptop users would be satisfied with those changes, and having the option of selecting the UI mode that best suits their needs.
