Same here. Under Linux, that is all you can do (as far as I know). No 
desktop environment (like KDE, Gnome, XFCE etc) has a "Version 
Information" tab in the file properties.

As for libraries, Linux (and most *nix systems) have a well established 
naming convention where the version number is part of the filename. I 
find this actually better than Windows - thus you can have multiple 
versions installed at the same time.
