    I have been using 10 for a little bit now, and have found it interesting and neat. Though I am wonder about the version number. When I got the install ISOs I found that the Windows version was 6.4. Now after this last release install it is now 10.0. Holy hamster hair cuts Batman. What happened to 7, 8 and 9? What is the significance of the base version being bumped to 10?

    Interesting read. I am very excited to see what happens next. Could this also have something to do with the fact that Windows Phone was 8.10 and Workstation was 6.3?Could the talks about a cross platform OS be true? I could see it working out from workstation to phone to XX to tablet well. Heck even using terminals would be great, with a low profile OS. This could be a reasoning for the XoneX to be running the Windows platform as well. Am I just crazy or is there something to that?

    I think Microsoft would like to see Windows 10 across all it's devices but whether this actually becomes reality remains to be seen.
