One way to avoid an unpopular OS is to put an extra number between it - wow.

Still find it hard to imagine why the lack of start menu on Win8 was such a big deal to folk and why MS didn't invoke it as it was being shouted at them for long enough. Wonder if Win8 might become Win9 sometime but most likely they'll leave 8 by the wayside despite MS pushing it so hard.

"together with the feedback you provide us"
Cripes, that would be a break from tradition by MS.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Why are they numbering all their OS versions now? There's no imagination. It's so bland. How about Windows Not8?

Personally I think that Microsoft will eventually drop any version numbering completely and start selling Windows on a subscription basis - it's working with Office 365 so why not?. This means that Windows will simply be updated as & when with no fanfare about new versions.

Names and new OS's can be a topic in their own right. I remember when that "awful" XP came along and so many folk nicknamed it Xtra Putrid. They soon changed their tune tho.

As for new stuff, I'm a bit selfish. Unless I have good reason I always wait for weeks for the dust to settle. It worked well for me on the various Updates/Upgrades to Win 8.0 and 8.1 and look at the mess Apple are currently in with their iOS 8. Maybe 8 is a jinxed number.

Does anyone know if the Windows 10 alpha/beta thing will work with VMWare?

Personally, I prefer a numerically based naming system, it makes everything much less confusing.

Also, is Win 10 going to be as reliant on the start menu as some of the previous editions? Though I don't particularly like Metro, I'm not that huge of a fan of the start menu either.

Anyone here remember Microsoft Bob? Ok, it wasn't officially an OS it was a shell but talk about a major flop.

I don't mind Windows 8 after I installed Start 8 and it put back the look of Windows 7. Win8 has been very stable for me.

Yeah, pity about Win 8 because its a good system. I've never bothered with a start menu but prefer the desktop and set it up to work they way I wanted it. Just some folders with shortcuts. Whatever, I guess we are getting off topic although we won't really know much about Win 10 until we get our hands on it.

To answer a question earlier in the thread, the preview works fine in VMWare - just tell it that it is Windows 8.

Thanks, though I wish I knew that last night O.o

Either way, I plan on doing a full reinstall of Windows this weekend (possibly in a VM running on Ubuntu...) so maybe I'll just use Win10 and forget Win8 (RIP $100) - depending on how buggy it is for me.

I knew it ! M$ isn't too smart with numbers, unless when counting in USD !

But not being able to count to count up to 10 without any error is after all normal for that company. Not the first time neither the last time they totally are missing the point.

Just one doubt, Are Windows phone apps supported on the new Windows 10 PC, As Microsoft has said that Windows 10 will have universal app ecosystem

I was reading about Windows 10 earlier tonight and, to answer NT56erbx earlier, it will have the start menu because that was what a lot didn't like about Windows 8

As an aside, I now doubt Windows 8.1 will ever get a start menu for the simple reason that MS want to put it behind them and push Windows 10 instead. As it happens it is of little consequence to many because there a perfectly good freebie that creates one and many manufacturers (including HP) provide an option. I would suggest it was mainly the inexperienced that had problems with 8.1. For the rest it's just another operating system with files and folders.
