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?"
Well now my bookmarks look out of order, thanks Microsoft.. Good thing I'm not OCD.
(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.

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.
