    Did you get electrocuted when you read "Windows 10"? No.
    Is the name the main reason you love/hate Windows? No.
    Then wth?

    They want to 'start fresh', a bit like jumping from 1.4 to 2.0 to signify a big leap/change.

    It also doesn't hurt that it is 2 higher than Windows 8, since some people see Windows 8 very negatively and might think Windows 9 is 'more of the same' but Windows 10 is more improved.

    Can you elaborate? Whats wrong with the 10?

    I love the Xbox One name, and las console was named Xbox 360.

    Or better: Windows 95 -> Windows 98 (WTF! where is the 97??) -> Windows ME (what??)
    Windows 2000 -> Windows XP (WTF! where is the 2001?) -> Windows Vista -> Windows 7

    A name is just that, a name.

    I think that it is perfect. My initial reaction was skeptical, however Windows One has been done... That part of the keynote was solid.

    Ultimately, the "Windows 10" moniker will become less and less relevant as the "One Windows" ecosystem becomes what we interact with. Our devices will blend into one continuous experience that is always live and in sync. Mobile first, Cloud first.

    You know you're doing something great when the only thing people can whine about is the revision number you chose.

    It's a revision number, cry more please.

    Agreed. Very stupid that they would skip 9?

    Anyways, I think BlackBerry should sue MS for intellectual theft. ;).

    Version number logic:
    Windows 7 = NT6.1 = 6+1 = 7
    Windows 8 = NT 6.2 = 6+2 = 8
    Windows 8.1 = NT 6.3 = 6+3 = 9
    Windows 10 = NT 6.4? = 6+4 = 10

    Hello,
    the reason is clear to me:
    xp: good
    vista: worse
    win7: very good
    win8/8.1: so bad for me, i will never install
    win 9: should be good, but it cant exist
    win 10: bad again?

    I was using all from xp to 8.1, so i found out the hard way: one good, one bad, one good ...
    regards -:)

    It certainly got people talking about it, so maybe that's one of the reasons?

    Maybe....but I was mostly referring to how BlackBerry also jumped version 7 to 10. Bad joke I guess.

    There are only 10 kinds of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't, meaning it's actually:

    You should have watched Microsoft's live show on YouTube. They named it Windows 10 to 'sync' their names on their products/services (XBox One, OneNote, etc) but they couldn't name it as 'Windows One' because that's the first version of Windows.

    A version number is just that a number, what should be more important as how it performs, functions, is it resource efficient etc.

    From a marketing stand point and branding the move is a simply brilliant, as the jump to double digits creates a clear line between 8 and windows 10 as people would have perceived Windows 9 to be the transition phase towards Windows 10.

    The jump to 10 puts the average consumer on the back foot and makes them think "i'm running windows 7... I am three versions behind!".

    Therefore playing on their mind that they must upgrade and the people who are using XP?

    It should be the kick up the back side that they need to get upgrading as they will be four versions behind.

    I am eagerly waiting on tech preview release and may end up dual booting.

    I wish people had actually watched the damn video before they start this again.... And again... Lol
