Originally Answered: Why did Microsoft call its new OS Windows 10?

Windows 2000, which was called NT 5.0 during development, was actually version 5.0. Windows XP was version 5.1. Windows Vista was 6.0, Windows 7 was 6.1, Windows 8 was 6.2, and Windows 8.1 is version 6.3.

Technically, modern versions of Windows are still based on the Vista kernel and code base — including Windows 10, which is actually Windows 6.4.
 
Windows 7 = Ver. 6.1= 6+1
Windows 8 = Ver. 6.2= 6+2
Windows 10= Ver. 6.4= 6+4

ISN'T IT OBVIOUS AND VISIBLE THROUGH NAKED EYES.
Source: I derived my answer from Why is it called Windows 10. Although they have not pointed out what I am doing here.
Also 7 ate 9 is my best answer

nice to get something interesting from a substantial source :Thmbsup:

I've got to be honest, I rarely if ever follow any of the msn or usatoday links you post, they're mostly stuff badly ripped off from somewhere else.

You've got to start somewhere. It may be a starting point if it's new to you.

well, if I'm vaguely interested in a topic you post, I mouseover the link, if it's from one of those two mentioned I no longer go there. There are exceptions: where I'm *very* interested in a topic (as you say, it's a starting point then) or if I know something about the topic (and want to see how badly they've mauled it) but the exceptions are seldom.

Is there any site that does get them right or is it too variable?

Two security flaws found that affect almost all processors.

Meltdown affects Intel, Spectre affects Intel, AMD, and ARM.

Very cool -- that deserves it's own thread in the developers area of the forum.

Your peanut butter and jelly sandwich is actually Canadian

For those who want to argue, the origin is Canadian, but it first became popular and was developed down south.

Check out this phone-laptop hybrid



I remember seeing something like that waaaaaaaaaaay back in 2008 or so.  A computer that was powered by a phone that could be plugged into the back of a screen to turn into a tablet, which could be plugged into a keyboard to turn into a laptop. 

EDIT: This isn't the one I remember seeing, but it's from 2011, and the concept is a bit more refined.  I like how they make the tablet into a keyboard, and the phone into a touchpad:
