    Microsoft skips 'too good' Windows 9, jumps to Windows 10


    If you've been looking forward to Windows 9, the OS that will fix what Windows 8 got wrong, you're in for a surprise: There will be no Windows 9. Instead, Microsoft announced it will proceed directly to Windows 10.

    This is an April Fools' joke, but it's interesting to note that nothing since Vista makes sense.

    Let's start with last NT.

    Windows NT 4 = 4.00
    Windows 2000 = 5.00
    Windows XP = 5.1.2600
    Windows Server 2003 = 5.2
    Windows Vista = 6.0

    Here the things started to go out of track !

    Windows 7 = 6.1
    Windows 8 = 6.2
    Windows 8.1 = 6.3

    what's next?

    Windows 9 = 6.4 or 7.0 ?

    Microsoft should change Windows naming scheme ! Windows 2014 maybe ?

    I read somewhere that they were going to switch to Roman numbers. Windows 9 will be IX and 10 will be OS X.

    Do they still teach Roman Numerals in school?? Other wise they will confuse the new generation.

    Rumor is that Microsoft is already planning on the next update to Windows 8 which is proposed as Windows 8.2 (Green), also which would have kernel 6.4 under it's hood and some new features brought from Windows 9.

    then what is wrong with the strange numerals it has given to the various versions of the OS out of its production ... they should hire a better math teacher ..i think
