Windows 9 or Windows 10: Sneak Peak.
There have been allot many publications on Windows 9 where is was expected reveal many undisputed features of Windows 9 than its predecessors 8 or 8.1.
I though provoking thing is why MS has said its Windows 10 not 9. There are many rumours that MS think number 9 brings bad luck to them, but when asked premier launch of Windows 10s name, Windows chief Terry Myerson and Joe Belfiore avoided a straight answer, instead they joked about how “seven ate nine” and then said how the “breadth of the product family” justifies the grandiose name. So, really, why did Microsoft call it Windows 10 instead of Windows 9?
There’s also the odd fact that the name of each Windows release doesn’t actually match the real version number; for example, Windows 8.1 is actually version 6.3 of Windows. Windows 10 is version 6.4. The last time the release name actually matched the version number was Windows NT 4.0, which was released back in 1996. Windows 2000, which was called NT 5.0 during development, was actually version 5.0. Windows XP was version 5.1. Windows Vista was 6.0, Windows 7 was 6.1, Windows 8 was 6.2, and Windows 8.1 is version 6.3.
Actually, modern versions of Windows are still based on the Vista kernel/code base — including Windows 10, which is actually Windows 6.4.
You can confirm this by pressing Windows key and then R on your computer.
It always goes by names, in saying that, MS tried to analogous it with more common name as Windows One (would have made more sense) based One Drive, One Note. Wicked part is that MS has already launched Windows 1, when I think even I had not started picking the computers. So I had made more sense to call it Windows 10.
The Best news is it would be free for the user who are on Windows 8 or 8.1 J I am lucky chap.
