A short while ago I posted a link with regards to W9 little expecting that prior to its release Windows 10 would make an appearance.

I have read that the reason for not having Windows 9 is due to the need for legacy support.

In Windows 95/98 developers in their code used the term Windows 9 to cover both. If MS now used Windows 9 this would cause problems.

True? I don' t know.
