Why is it called Windows 10, and not Windows 9

by Vijandren · 4 hours ago · 4 Comments · 1.7k views

When quizzed about why the new Windows is called Windows 10, instead of Windows 9, Windows chiefs Terry Myerson and Joe Belfiore avoided giving a straight answer, choosing instead to joke that ‘seven ate nine’. The real reason however is slightly more technical, and involves the way code has been written for 3rd party programs running on the Windows platform.

Think of it as something similar to the Y2K bug when we realized using two digits to represent the year was going to suddenly cause computers to roll back to the 1900′s.
