    Thinking through the new Windows OS name, "Windows 10", I can not help but to see the real name.
    Microsoft has been pushing the Windows One theme for a bit now and since Microsoft couldn't rename
    Windows, Windows 1.0 since it has already been done (November 20th 1985), they went with "10". As it turns out, 10 is actually a binary number, on or off. So basically it is Windows 1(0). All the reason to jump past 9. For me an interesting thought.

    10 in binary is 2...

    It's 10. Ten. Hopefully that helps you see the real name.

    No they spoke it out loud as ten. Binary would be one zero (which is 2 in decimal). However since they spoke it out loud there is no alternative. It is its ten.
