It's official.. it's called Windows 10

Recommended Posts

When it's out I'll have to play on a Win10 machine before I dare spend money on one. Hopefully it can be the next version of Windows I use and leave XP behind.

You wouldn't leave me on my own would you?    :(

 

It actually sounds like a mishmash of everything that's gone before.

A brief history of Microsoft Windows:

 

Windows 98SE . . . a good one.

 

Windows ME  . . . . a stinker.

 

Windows XP  . . . .  another good one.

 

Windows Vista  . . . another stinker.

 

Windows 7 . . . . . . another good one.

 

Windows 8 . . . . . . another stinker.

 

Windows 10 . . . . . Let's hope they follow the pattern! ^_^

:lol:  If the discount is deep enough, I'll get another HDD for these old xp boxes and keep both OSs active, or maybe dual boot, or something. 

 

win10 pretty much has to be a remix of what has gone before.  Not necessarily a bad thing, just sayin'.  After all just how much other stuff is there?

@Derek - don't forgot Windows 2000 and Win NT

 

I cannot pass judgement on them, because I've never used either one. Maybe you can fill in the blanks for me.

I feel like I'm taking Crazy Pills™ - Windows XP was trashed when it was first released, people said it had a 'fisher price' system theme, it was buggy and terrible until SP1 at the least. I feel like I'm the only one that remembers this.

 

Good one/bad one rhetoric aside, I'm actually quite excited. I'm going to throw the preview on my laptop (just as I did with 8) to test it out. Couldn't care less about the name, they could call it Windows Fartty McButterBottom for all I care, I'm not sure why it's a big deal that they skipped 9 (especially considering windows 9x and the fact that 7 wasn't even the 7th revision of windows) :rolleyes:

they have all been good (maybe some have been better than others) but they have all had their strengths.

@winapp2 - you're not the only one, I remember vividly the bagging XP initially received, especially with the delay in acceptance with big businesses.

my memory of ME was rose-coloured, never heard or had any problems with it, but mention it to others and you can watch their faces turn red in anger.

 

there was nothing wrong with Vista, it just needed more memory, and Win8 behaves normally once a 3rd party Start Menu program is added.

Win10 will be just the same with some small quirk that everyone will jump onto.

I'll be getting it right after the initial wave of nerds jumps onboard.

I remember all the conspiracy theories about it such as Microsoft will track your every move, etc.

a lot of the early hype seems to cover Start Screen, Start Menu, and Start button changes.

so they finally listened.

They probably can't afford another Win8x, more people could potentially leave to non-Windows tablets.

True, but for the vast majority, it's Windows or nothing.

I know a few who have tried to ween themselves off Windows, and even Microsoft, but there usually ends up being some sort of spanner in the works that forces them back.

 

I still haven't read a reason WHY they have called it Win10, or more curiously, why skip 9.

Probably international translations of nine and the Windows 9x documentation coming up over windows 9's. Confusion and what not.

 

That being said, I've been running win10 in my VM for a bit today and I've been liking it! BORDERLESS WINDOWS!!

Some speculation that Win 8.1 and 8.2 (not mistaken) shut the gap between 9 to 10

Yes this was reportedly done because some lazy developers identify Windows 95 and 98 by only looking at the first number "9" I'll see if I can find the article about that which I read

 

 

Rumor calls out Windows 95 as the reason Microsoft skipped version 9
