    Probably because some applications check your Windows version and can misdetect it for Windows 9x and 9x can stand for win95 or 98 or 98SE or ME I guess it would really only be a problem if you were installing some ancient apps. If that's not it its gotta be something technical also Windows 4.0 is technically Windows 95

    I find that people don't like how Windows 8/8.1 handles the switching between the desktop and the start screen.
    I find if I explain that treating the desktop as another "app", folks have little trouble accepting Windows 8/8.1.
    I do this at my job as well.

    What I've found though is that most of the people proclaiming their hatred for Windows 8 don't even know they can use the classic desktop! They seriously have formed their definitive opinion without doing the slightest bit of research... and SO MANY people have been this way that it's MINDBLOWING!

    Naming conventions for public releases from Microsoft have no technical basis. Internal builds do follow a logical naming convention but those are not for public view.

    This is marketing decision..

    If there is no specification (sometimes preceded or succeeded by a quote), a thread reply is always to the original poster.
