I've seen that and laughed.

They want to say it's to get as far away from 8 as possible. That would make sense IF it actually looked different than 8. All of the leaked screens show the exact same looking UI with Metro attached to the start menu. Not exactly a wild change.

This is the only thing that truly can make any sense.

I also suspect the timing of Windows 10ís release was a factor. A solid date wasnít given, but Microsoft did say the new OS was coming after next yearís BUILD conference. That timing potentially puts Windows 10ís release in line with iOS 9, assuming Apple AAPL +0.73% sticks to its typical release schedule. iOS and Windows arenít directly comparable (yet), but having two competing operating systems released with similar version numbers would draw inevitable comparisons Iím sure both companies would rather avoid.
