Microsoft skips Windows 9
On September 30, Microsoft announced the upcoming release of the latest version of its operating system, Windows 10
. The strange thing is that there was no Windows 9. They went straight from version 8 to 10. It's been noted that this makes real an April Fool's Day hoax published by InfoWorld in 2013, which claimed that "Microsoft skips 'too good' Windows 9, jumps to Windows 10."
Microsoft hasn't explained why they really did decide to skip version 9.
