Microsoft Finally Reveals What Happened to Windows 9
Well here is one answer we have all been looking for. Ever since Microsoft launched Windows 10 everyone’s been wondering what went down with 9? Windows has been following the numeric order since a while so why did they skip 9 and jump from 8 and 8.1 directly to 10?
Microsoft finally revealed what happened to Windows 9 at their Build developer’s conference last week in San Francisco. Joe Belfiore the Corporate Vice President, Operating Systems Group at Microsoft appeared wearing a blue T-Shirt with Windows logo printed over it, only the four panels of windows were secretly coded with binary 0s and 1s.
All four panels of the Windows contained a secret message for the 5,000 attendees of the conference; Kévin Gosse a developer cracked the hidden code after analyzing an image and posted all four messages on his Twitter
The first message read, ‘There are 10 types of people in the world’ an old joke that coders used to use as in binary language the number 2 a counterpart of 10.
The second was the answer to the mystery of Windows 9 not making it to the world and it said, ‘Windows 10, because 7 8 9’ (seven ate nine) yes it’s the same old joke. Microsoft you are evil, most of the people died of anxiety as of now (pun intended).
Third was directly for Gosse as he was the first one to discover, it read ‘Congrats on being one of the first’. And fourth stated “Windows Insiders help us develop the future. Talk to us @ Windows,” inviting the developers to join them and help develop new apps with Windows 10.
Pretty geeky right?
