Microsoft is skipping Windows 9

Microsoft recently announced their new operating system; it is called Windows 10. An early technical preview is currently available. The new operating system goes in a different direction than Windows 8. Windows 8 is more focused on a tablet like setting. However, Windows 10 goes back to the more traditional desktop experience.

Is Windows 10 going to be better then Windows 8?

Windows 8 is focused on a singular experience for Tablets and PC’s. Windows 10 brings back the familiar start menu from Windows 7. Windows 10 also includes multiple desktops and a new task view button to easily switch between applications. I really like how Ubuntu makes it easy to switch between desktops. Hopefully, Windows 10 makes it just as easy to switch. Windows 10 also has new snap enhancements; it is now possible to snap four applications together. It looks like Microsoft is really improving the overall Windows experience with this new update. I think Windows 10 is going to be an improvement from¬†Windows 8.
