TheGoldenMiner January 27, 2015 Why did they skip 9! 9 would of been better than 10! Windows 2000 – Bad Windows XP – Good WIndows Vista – Bad Windows 7 – Good Windows 8 – Bad So Windows 9 Would of been Good and Windows 10 will suck Charles Ma January 27, 2015 They copied so much from Macintosh sticktornado January 27, 2015 They skipped Windows 9 because some programs would have troubles with names, see: Windows 95 Windows 98 Windows 9 The programs usually see the first number apparently, so they’re confused and could crash. But that’s just what I’ve heard. sowmy5174 January 27, 2015 where the hell did Japan and 9 come from? why do people pick out on teenie shit like this? XD Mantikal January 27, 2015 There’s another “new feature” being introduced in Windows 10 called “Virtual Desktops” but consider this… The “X Window System ” from the X.org Foundation (Unix and Unix-Like Operating Systems) – like LINUX and the “X Window Manager” program that sits on top of it – allow the more technically savvy USERS to replace the whole look and feel of how things get done on their systems with a wide variety of radically different “desktop environments” – verses being “locked into” just one gradually evolving – yet static “desktop environment” like the MS Windows and Mac OSX – proprietary tech vendors do. One of the built in features for this X-Window Manager since ” 1989 ” has been “Virtual Desktops” which allows a user to configure a set of programs and/ or screen layouts for how those programs launch (for what ever work flow they need) then click a button and instantly have a completely different set of programs and/ or screen layout for a completely different workflow or purpose. A user can also have floating windows – where one could be reading a book or newspaper (full screen on their laptop) and have a video playing in the corner (floating over the document one may be reading) at the same time. The most visually extreme version of “Virtual Desktops” in Linux is the virtual 3-D cube which is driven by the “Compiz compositing window manager” and the “Emerald Theme Decoration Manager” background programs. Well hey, 25 years later – after its introduction , Microsoft has just gotten around to having this “New – Ooooh Wow” built in eye candy feature in Windows 10. Check out a youtube video titled… “ubuntu 3D Desktop (Cube) (KDE & Compiz Fusion & CairoDock) fullHD 1080p” to see just a little of what can be done with this setup. John Castro January 27, 2015 They left out 9 because they are trying to emphasize how radically different this new version of Windows is. jaxxrr January 27, 2015 yea the noobs… didnt like vista but they liked 7 even though it was almost a clone.. they didn’t like 8 but they like 10.. yea they learn the new stuff in the os they hate then the next one even though its a clone is awesome… Thu Win January 27, 2015 Already ditched Windows for Chrome OS. No viruses! Chris Cunningham January 27, 2015 Ah, superstition, the epitome of irrational thinking. Joseph Rodriguez January 27, 2015 I think they skipped Windows 9 because their old OS was named, windows 9x Guns derpy January 27, 2015 i like windows 8…hate all you want Evan Black January 27, 2015 Number 9 Number 9 Number 9 Number 9 Number 9 Number 9 Number 9 Number 9 Number 9………………..

Hiwa January 27, 2015 more like Windows 10 aims to “make money” Adrian D. January 27, 2015 Its too early to say that Apple threw it’s hat on the ring. Hobert McFarland January 27, 2015 I would like to know how large the size of the OS is going to be… friður January 27, 2015 Pretty dumb name i would of called it Windows 8.2 like concept that i think inspired this windows Leuel48Fan January 28, 2015 There’s no Windows 9 because 7 8 9. Obviously… MangaMiyn January 28, 2015 7 was an odd number tobias meyrick January 28, 2015 With multiple desktops it looks like windows have taken something from the mac and rightly so. Apart from the price and a few small things I think the mac is better than most if not all windows desktops and laptops especially the user interface. Compared to windows 8 Mac osx10 is less confusing, more elegant and put simply, easier to use. But this version looks better and less confusing for windows 7 users and could snatch back a few old windows users that are still using windows 7 (or before 7) or mac users that have recently switched. SoldierSparky January 28, 2015 I knew it they did to copy Apple Mac OS X now windows 10 Mubaraq Hamzat January 28, 2015 Windows 8 is great I don’t know how people don’t like it Comments are closed.
