Microsoft today announced the next version of Windows will be called Windows 10. According to Microsoft, Windows 10 will encompass "one product family, one platform, one store." Windows 10 will run on desktops, laptops, tablets, and phones. Microsoft says the operating system will offer users a seamless experience across multiple different form factors with varied input types (mouse, pen, touch). One of the key components will be the shared code so developers can create apps that run on any of the supported form factors with little customization. Microsoft shied away from sharing too many specifics as far as features go, but noted that preview builds of the desktop platform will reach consumers in early 2015. The company didn't make any commitments as to when then next version of Windows Phone will be available.

Windows 10 is going to be the last major update to the OS. From here on, it will be tweaked with continued updates. I would imagine, whenever MS decides to do another major OS, it will probably be built from the ground up with new software technology to work on hardware that doesn't currently exist. Until then, enjoy the endless updates! Lol

Windows 9?

So they are just skipping over the number 9 like it doesn't exist? Unacceptable. I bet they're just upset that the gypsy who has a pad at 34th and Vine wouldn't sell them a bottle of love potion number 9. 🙄 Yeah, that's the reason!
Well Blackberry went from 6 to 10, and Apple has been stuck at OS X since 200 (ostensibly pronounced 'oh ess ten' even though the previous versions used Arabic numerals and everybody I know pronounces it 'oh ess ex').

Version numbers never make any...
Perhaps they went to Windows 10 because they are porting the successor to Nokia Belle to all those platforms and wanted a clear numeric break to go with the "new" OS ;). They bought out the Nokia handset business for a reason and it wasn't for the coo...
