Somehow Microsoft doesn’t understand basic math and has gone from Windows 8 to Windows 10. In a somewhat strange move, Microsoft has skipped passed Windows 9 and announced Windows 10 as the next version of the company’s popular operation system. The previous version of Windows was Windows 8.

Microsoft is bringing Windows 10 to most all of their platforms. This most likely will include: PCs, Surface, Windows phones, and Xbox One.

Windows 10 will run across an incredibly broad set of devices – from the Internet of Things, to servers in enterprise datacenters worldwide. Some of these devices have 4 inch screens – some have 80 inch screens – and some don’t have screens at all. Some of these devices you hold in your hand, others are ten feet away. Some of these devices you primarily use touch/pen, others mouse/keyboard, others controller/gesture – and some devices can switch between input types.

A notable change in Windows 10 is the return of the start menu. Although the start menu was included in Windows 8, it was not the default.

Windows 10 is expected to be released late next year.
