    Because "Windows nein" would be a bad marketing move for German users.

    What's your dumb theory?

    9 is a number of bad luck in Japan. There are no buildings with floor number 9 there, just as there are no buildings with a floor 13 in the United States. To release "9" would be bad for the Japanese.

    Also, there is no 9 any longer. Didn't you hear? 789. (seven ate nine). Even my 4 year old knows that.

    -----------------------------

    Here is another theory... Everyone has believed the rumor that "Windows 9" will be a free upgrade for everyone. Now Microsoft can say, "Sorry, you missed 9. Now you'll all have to pay full price for 10." Gotcha!

    It's to compensate for the under-numbering of Windows Phone 8.1

    Simple math.

    Take 9. Divide it by the square root of "7.8", which is 2.79284800875. Now, take that and multiply it by the address of Microsoft- One Microsoft Way, Area code 98052, so 1+8+8+5+2=24, which is 67.02835221. Now, subtract the model number of the best selling Lumia- L520-which puts us at -452.97164779.

    See all that confusion? Who wants that???

    Windows 10. The Math is simple.

    If you argue with math, you will lose.

    Because Microsoft is trying to stay as far away from Windows 8 as possible.
