    Actually, Windows 9 already exists. I wrote an explanation of Window's 10 naming on another forum:

    Interesting!! But Windows 8.1 or as some say 8.1.1 is not that big of a change to call it Windows 9 or New OS.

    Same with Windows 10. It's just a facelift with the ability to run Metro in windowed mode. Virtual desktops have been around since Windows XP. Anyone so keen to have 4 virtual desktops need not necessarily wait for the 10 Preview. They can download a FREE utility from Microsoft right now to enable it in XP/7/8.... (it's called Desktops and is part of Microsoft Technet Sysinternals toolset).

    I was thinking it was to make Windows 7 sound more outdated (I.E. Windows 7 to Windows 10 sounds like a bigger jump) and also to get people talking, but it's possible I guess, after all IMF head Christine Lagarde is.

    Numerology isn't something I've really looked at in any depth, but I remember someone once saying "...it doesn't matter whether you or I believe in it, the fact is they do." So, if whoever was in charge of naming it is into numerology, do you think it was just to keep the kernel version numbering in a nice tidy sequence or because of what the number 9 represents? According to Wikipedia, Number 9 = Highest level of changes, although I've always taken 9 to mean highest levels of change, but in a bad way (such as death/destruction)?

    I liked it better when they did by the years i.e. Windows 2015.

    You are quite right in ways i see now, not too much of a big change, but considered a new OS. Seems like again gearing more towards mobile devices. Need to get a closer look at start menu.
