Microsoft Skips Windows 9, Heads Straight to Windows 10 | Re/code

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edit by carnageX:


Here's the Upgrade FAQ:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/wind...eConf_win10faq

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

It appears that Windows 10 update notifications are coming through to people in the taskbar/system icon tray asking if you'd like to reserve a copy.

If you're one of the people that would like to disable it:

Windows 7:
1. Right-click the task bar
2. Click "Properties"
3. Click the "Customize..." button in the Notification Area section
4. The item in question is titled GWX Get Windows 10. Change the Behavior to "Hide icon and notifications"

Windows 8.1:
1. In the task bar, the left-most notification icon is an upward arrow. Click it.
2. Click "Customize..."
3. The item in question is titled GWX Get Windows 10. Change the Behavior to "Hide icon and notifications"

Alternatively, uninstall the following Windows Update:
KB3035583
KB2990214

-------------------------------------------

To cancel your reservation:
Right click on the Get Windows 10 App or Windows icon located in right end of the taskbar.
Select “Check your upgrade status”
Select “Cancel reservation”

Rumors I've heard why they skipped 10:

To distance themselves further from Win8 branding
Distract people by making them criticize the weird naming convention
Or a more likely candidate, that since in Japan "4" and "9" are considered bad luck (and apparently "9" in Japanese is "ku" which is the same prononciation as "suffering", they wanted to avoid "Windows Suffering" in Japan).

Honestly I could give a crap what they call it - the improvements look nice (finally, multiple desktops!).

I personally see it like this. They are trying to unify like Apple, Apple is on 10.

Read this in some comments:

"Why are they calling it Windows 10? Because 7 ate (8) 9." Corny and made me chuckle a bit.
