Microsoft skips Windows 9, jumps straight to Windows 10

28

Well, it's official folks, Microsoft has officially introduced its new version of Windows, but guess what - this isn't Windows 9 that we're talking about. Don't worry, though, we aren't dealing with some form of a spin-off or an enterprise-centric version - it'll be a full-blown Windows alright. You see, we were all expecting Microsoft to reveal Windows 9 at its event in San Francisco today, but what we got instead is... drum roll, please... Windows 10!

We ain't joking - it appears Microsoft is so proud of the work it's done on the new Windows, that it's willing to give it a bigger name, something that will reflect the new beginning of sorts. Of course, all the meaningful leaks we've seen about Windows 9 thus far remain valid, including the metrofied Start Menu and a refocus on the desktop environment. Stay tuned for more details, as Microsoft reveals more about the upcoming Windows 10, which, by the way, is scheduled for release in 2015.
