    Microsoft announced the next version of their operating system. It is called Windows 10 which is skipping Windows 9 and it very similar to Apple's Desktop OS Mac OS X. As well it is similar to BlackBerry 10. Will all these OSs be confusing for people? Should BlackBerry rename BB10 so it stand out more? Can blackberry or apple sue Microsoft for a number?

    I find it ironic, actually. Microsoft could superscript or subscript their number to differentiate their product from Apple"s Roman numeral and BlackBerry's Arabic.
    Let's leave that up to their marketing geniuses....

    Really? Sue for a number???

    I'm pretty sure no one is going to confuse two completely different products who are named BlackBerry 10 and Windows 10 lol

    Yeah, if cars were as "reliable" and crash prone as computers running MS software...

    I assume we know the famous quote...

    I haven't experienced a crash with my Windows 7 in... geez, I honestly can't remember. I never shut it down either... The most I do with it is put it to sleep every now and then...

    Often times when someone's computer is crashing a lot or is going very slow, it's user error, installing too much junk...

    Apple is the only one who was actually at 10 (x) as a version number.

    I'll be looking to replace my laptop in fall 2015. I hope that Windows 10 will be out by then, or that they will at least offer a free upgrade the way they did with Vista to Windows 7.

    Really? For all current 8.1 users or those that buy a new computer with 8.1 in the couple of months leading up to the launch of 10?

    Forgive my ignorance but that doesn't make sense. How does Microsoft make money if all current users upgrade free?

    Because not many have windows 8 in the first place and they still make money from pre-installed OS sales.

    It depends on the situation. Windows benefited from people upgrading from Windows Vista because Vista created a lot of bad word of mouth. Not sure if 8.1 will have that same effect. It's not technically a bad OS, it's simply the interface isn't ideal for non-touchscreen devices.

    Windows 10 is nice because of the upgraded command prompt and the interface adapts to what you use. So keyboard and mouse experience is different from full touch or mixture.

    Have you tried it or are you going by something you've read? If it's an article would you mind sharing the link. I'd be interested in reading through it myself.

    Thanks.
