    Windows 10 Threshold was Windows 9 internally at Microsoft

    Interesting: Windows 10 Threshold was Windows 9 internally at Microsoft

    When Microsoft jumped directly to Windows 10 from Windows 8 PC / Windows Phone 8.1, it was quite a surprise, given the logical and expected order could have been Windows 9 after Windows 8. But our sources kept referring it as Windows Phone 9 for quite sometime. We know that the first iteration of Windows 10 was named or referred to as Threshold internally by Microsoft and the latest one is known as Redstone. So, if what a Microsoft patent reveals in its text has to be taken into account, it seems the Redstone could have been the real “Windows 10” while Threshold was always Windows 9.
