Yup you heard it Microsoft 10 has been announced!

SAN FRANCISCO -- Microsoft just said no to 9. The follow-on to the current Windows 8 operating system will be known as Windows 10.

Originally codenamed Windows Threshold, the new operating system essentially does away with the dependency on the tiled "Metro" user interface that Microsoft had attempted to implement across its entire device line, from desktop PCs to Surface tablets and Widows Phone devices. In its place is a combination of the so-called live tiles, present in areas like the new Start Menu, and a more classic Windows experience that aims to please both touch and keyboard-and-mouse users.

Still think the idea of skipping 9 is silly... If they didn't wanna go by number anymore, why not go back to special names like xp and vista? Or maybe Windows *insert year here*?

Good idea Mate. Windows 8 should have been named Windows Belly Button Lint. That is how useful I found it to be. :rolleyes:
