IMO it's much more stable and solid than that cruddy Windows 8 preview. And the start menu is back! Its got a bit of bugs in formatting and displaying things, but I'm pretty impressed still

So when the MS guy that introduced it, says it makes sense why they skipped 9 ... is it true. He said something like, when you see 10 as a whole, you'll understand.

I miss the days when Microsoft was the ubiquitous Evil Empire and Bill Gates the Anti-Christ.

I don't think 10 as a whole has been revealed yet. All I know is that Xbox is getting Windows 10, and that the "10" may be a marketing term to make Windows "7" users feel really outdated and want to upgrade

It appears to be the official name, but of course we never know. This is the quote I saw yesterday at Polygon:

 

 

Asked about the Windows 10 name in a Q&A following the presentation, Myerson said, "When you see the product in its fullness I think you will agree with us that it is a more appropriate name."

 

Maybe internally the tablet version of 8 was regarded as "9". Who knows.

It's windows 9 not windows 10. Makes me wonder what they are going to do next time. Maybe a reboot so the actual windows 10 will be 'windows' by microsoft.

I know, it's supposed to be called Win9. The guy even makes a joke about "one OS to rule them all," but they're going for double digits.

And they could even play with it, making it Windows 1.0 - awesome!

So how far has the store infiltrated the OS. Can't play a file format and it will take you there to 'suggest' things you could buy. Spam popups for sales like STEAM. Don't think it isn't going to happen.

The built in store is great for downloading ports of mobile casual games. They all work lol. I can't really get real games to work on this yet

Not to beat this thing, but now I see one explanation claiming the name is to avoid issues with older versions, specifically Win95 and 98, which used Win9x as file names, or some such.

They should have stuck the year of release as the name of the Windows version.

They tried but it was impractical. With Win2k you had to say "2k server" or "2k workstation".

Whoever decided to keep the flat UI needs to be shot.

I'm already loving the new Windows Server more than 2012 R2

They should really get off the numbers, like they did with Windows XP and be a bit more innovative with names.. 7, 8, 9.. but they still got 1989 numbers before they have to reconsider.. colliding with Windows 2000.

Nah, now they're naming them after fictional fighter pilots and Friz Freleng toons.

 

(Or places in California, if you want to be boring about it.)

 

Edit: they also finally managed to make a file manager that's actually useful for managing files. Only took them, what, 30 years.
