    Default [News] Microsoft unveils Windows 9 ... I mean Windows 10 to the masses

    That's correct ... Windows 9 doesn't exist and it will never exist. Microsoft decided to skip this number and instead call the new Windows, Windows 10. Why did they choose to skip a version? Mostly because as they see it, this is a new beginning, a threshold for Windows, bringing together a long promised system that will run on a huge variety of devices; from the smallest devices without a screen to phones, tablets, desktop PCs and consoles. Microsoft pointed out that this is not a "single user interface to rule them all" but instead a product family, with a tailored experience for each device.

    Sometime today, the company is also launching a new program called the Windows Insider Program, which will allow all of you to download Windows 10 to preview it and share your feedback thus help shaping the new operating system. You can join the program by clicking here. Be advised that this is not a finished product, but instead a pre-beta full of bugs and issues. It is not meant to replace your primary operating system and is meant for people who are comfortable dealing with bugs.

    Below the whole introduction to the new OS with a demonstration:

    From what I read, the reason that 9 is being skipped is because of a programing shortcuts used to shorten windows 95 and 98 to just "windows 9" as in the script:

    "if(version.number contains "windows 9") {
    etc etc "

    Aparently this affects over 4000 3rd party apps.

    I also just learned that apparently the Windows 10 Tech Preview has a keylogger in it, which is mentioned in the registration blurb that you agree to when registering to use it... and it pretty much records everything you do.


    ... Given what I do on my computer, I'm going to steer clear of the tech preview. |:

    It's not even that different. I don't care about the niche features like four screen pop. I do like extra desktops, but SHOW ME HOW MUCH FASTER THE SYSTEM RUNS, HOW THE COMPATIBILTY WORKS. GEEZ.
    I don't care for silly features that can be added to Win8 with simple programs.

    they should have stopped at Windows XP and just developed for that until technology became so advanced that it was no longer viable. i miss XP. my grandpa had me try to get music off his iPod on his win8 laptop and i was like... where's my computer? where's run.exe? WHERE IS THE START MENU? SCREW THIS GRANDPA DO IT YOURSELF.

    After using the Windows 10 Tech Preview for two weeks, I can say that a lot of Windows 7 users will finally change operating systems.
    It has the sleek metro style coat of paint on an OS similar to windows 7. You have the original 7 start menu with a windows8-esque styled mini-start screen attached to it, which can be edited to suit your needs.

    For me the whole numbering system for any products are random, owners of whatever products can label them anyway they like, take the iPhone for example, idk if they're trying to sound cool or what, honestly I don't really care much, I remember when the intel core processors had really useless & confusing labels, damn them, they're just playing with us XD

    you mean how intel has almost infinite names for laptop processors? Atleast the i3, i5, and i7 gives a general idea on quality instead of reading the extra stats, but yeah I know what you mean xD

    even the early i-core family were confusing, for example some i3 processors before were better than some i5 variants

    I'm glad though they fixed their labeling now

    After Windows 8 and XBox One, my faith in Microsoft products is at all-time low. Hopefully they'll surprise me with Windows 10, but in the meantime I shan't be holding my breath--and Microsoft have much grovelling to do.

    Windows 8 in particular is a prime example of Microsoft trying to tactically (and laughably) force an existing PC market to conform to the trends of the more profitable (and exploitable) touchscreen tablet market. It essentially uses a tacked-on interface designed to ensure that Windows 8 is as user-friendly as you like when you run it on a touchscreen device (especially a Windows device) but is anything but efficient should you run it on a desktop PC. In the latter, Windows 7 pisses on it in all-round flexibility, support and performance, and any extra speed that Windows 8 boasts over 7 is nullified by a poorly designed mish-mash of menus that are counter intuitive and tedious to navigate at best.

    I dearly hope Micro$oft can show that they've learned their lesson with their next OS; that forcing all computer users to march to one tune in the name of business is actually counter-productive and just helps its competitors in the long run, which are doing the exact opposite by giving users real choices (myself included).
