windows10-logoIs Microsoft Windows 10 Better that Windows 8? We think so!, Windows 9 skipped? Yes and there might be a good reason.

Microsoft officially announced that Windows 10 will be the next official Windows OS. Windows 9 has been skipped but the way Microsoft sees it Windows 8.1 took its place. Microsoft Windows 8 was a disappointment to many, mostly because there was so much difference from Windows 7. Windows 8 has a great concept but with lots of bugs and glitches it was not appalling to consumers. Windows 8.1 update was a huge improvement but still a lot of bugs and glitches remained.

So what happened to Windows 9? There are few rumors floating around as to why Microsoft skipped 9. One reason is that some believe Windows 8.1 was more like Windows 9 since Microsoft never added extension to the OS.  Second was that Windows 9 would have made a possible comp ability with third party software.  For a programmer that writes the code the (win9) could be mistaken for Win95 and Win98 when verifying a compatibility check and that could create issues. There is no official word why, but we believe that it has to do with compatibly check.
