Question regarding unmanaged packages

I have a question regarding unmanaged packages..
Does the unmanager packages have a version number? Why are the unmanaged packages used for?

Yes, unmanaged package supports version number. 

Unmanaged packages are typically used to distribute open-source projects or application templates to provide developers with the basic building blocks for an application. Once the components are installed from an unmanaged package, the components can be edited in the organization they are installed in. The developer who created and uploaded the unmanaged package has no control over the installed components, and can't change or upgrade them. Unmanaged packages should not be used to migrate components from a sandbox to production organization. Instead, use Change Sets.
