Default Android Version 2.3.6?

I have Verizon / Droid X through my workplace (un-rooted). I noticed that my Android version is still on 2.3.4 while some co-workers on our Verizon plan with newer phones (Moto Droid 4) have 2.3.6.

I take it 2.3.4 is normal on the Droid X? (System Updates tells me I'm up to date.) We might not get any updates past that? Should I care that I'm missing out on anything between 2.3.4 and 2.3.6?

What got me really curious, was looking at the Exchange ActiveSync account settings on a co-worker's phone, I was shocked to see "Tasks" show up as an option (along with the standard Email, Contacts, and Calendar). I thought maybe the difference was in 2.3.4 to 2.3.6???

2.3.4 is most likely the last update the DX is going to see. Now, the DX2 is different phone and has a different number altogether if you run across that scenario.
What do you have in System Version? 4.5.621? Or what we just call .621. That is the most updated version although maybe not the best

Thanks BigBad, yep, I have the .621 update. I assume there's no great loss in being stuck on 2.3.4 instead of newer versions? Looking at the 2.3.X release history, I don't see anything ground-breaking beyond 2.3.4, but it's hard to know what generic comments like "System enhancements" and "Camera software enhancements" include.

Like I said, the one thing that got me really curious was my co-worker's ability to select (and use) Tasks for syncing with Exchange ActiveSync. (On his 2.3.6 phone.) I see no mention of this in release notes after 2.3.4, but it would have been intersting to see for myself after upgrading. (And I really don't know what other explanation there is to him having Tasks on his phone.)
