    This is the new Windows 10 Forum. It was the old Nine Forums and is being updated to reflect the new name. The URL has changed but all the old content is still here. As the Windows 10 name was just released today I am sure John is having a great time updating this forum.
    Looks good so far.

    I'm sure Microsoft have done this just to annoy him.

    Wow, I must be living under a mushroom. Windows 10 now instead of Windows 9....what happen to the "beta" release of Win 9 we were hearing about???

    Sorry but this jumping around is going to create more confusion than before. The "uniformed" will ask the question, at least a billion times, "What happened to Windows 9?"

    Whatever.....................

    I think you'll find that the uninformed largely don't care. The average-Joe consumer can be relegated to one of three categories:

    (a) they don't run Windows and consume the web on a tablet/phablet/phone
    (b) they'll get a new PC and run whatever Windows version comes on their PC. (just tell me where to find excel...lol)
    (c) they'll stick with Windows 7 or even XP.

    I don't recall that MS ever called it Windows 9. They always referred to it as Threshold. It is the press and we that called it such. Simply an assumption on everyone else's part.

    John didn't put all of his eggs in one basket, so was ready with the WindowsTen domain name.

    Lol! Well, they run Windows. It's just that more times than not they don't know which edition.

    "Edition?" > "Yes. What edition of Windows is on your PC (or device)?" > "I don't know!"

    When I fixed my neighbours PC (spyware etc and stuck another 2 GB ram in it) he told me he ran XP Windows.
    The Machine had Vista SP2 on it. Joe Public does not care as long as it works.

    Thinking about this I was wondering since the codename for Windows 9 was Threshold, what if the builds that were considered to be 9 or Threshold, ACTUALLY crossed the threshold into becoming Windows 10 because it's such a big release?....

    There better be MUCH more in store in the next four to six months to have 10 to not be called 9.

    But then again, when Windows 7 was being developed and launched, there was still some maligned feelings about 7 being another sucky launch. Looked what happened.

    Methinks lighting may strike twice.

    LOL!....now that is just unreal. But now that I think about it, I know a few people like that myself. The blank stare on their faces after I ask them what OS they are running, is a dead giveaway.
