A Reason for Windows 10 Being 10

If you have seen the news about Windows 10 being released, one of the “controversies” was the skipping of “Windows 9”. One “dev” has added a reason:

Microsoft dev here, the internal rumours are that early testing revealed just how many third party products that had code of the form

if(version.StartsWith(“Windows 9”))
{ /* 95 and 98 */
} else {
and that this was the pragmatic solution to avoid that.

Sounds like a good reason for some to stop complaining – “normal” people just don’t care.
