Some people ask why there is no Windows 9 and why Microsoft has jumped directly to Windows 10. This is because there are many third-party apps that checks which operating system you are using, and if Microsoft name name their upcoming OS as Windows 9 then the third-party apps may confuse it with the older operating system Windows 9X, such as Windows 95 and Windows 98.
