Everyone expected the next Microsoft OS to be called Windows 9 or Windows 8.2, but the company surprised by revealing Windows 10.

Few details were released, but more will be known when the Technical Preview is made available 1 October. Microsoft did say Windows 10 would arrive in the middle of 2015, and showed off a revamped Start menu.

Here, we'll track the latest leaks and rumours about Windows 10, letting you know more of what to expect from the next version of Windows.

never know what to believe with PcPro as they now seem to track rumours on websites rather than gather real source... why would MS reveal it as windows 9 then windows 10 2 days later? (completely missing out the number 9 seems odd too)

doesnt make sense

I even think that photo is faked of the bloke supposedly announcing it with Windows 10 on the wall behind him...

I tested Windows 7 Beta when I was running Windows Vista on my main PC. I was so impressed with Windows 7 (or was it so unimpressed with Vista?) that I made it my main OS even while in Beta.

I'm going for a dual boot on my Windows 7 laptop. Just making a bootable USB flashdrive. Windows 7 works well and is perfect for my needs, but I'm nosey.

Tried running it in virtualbox got errors, both 64bit & 32bit



Reading around seem to be a bit fussy on hardware   :(

what about VMware player?

I think i will grab a copy... I have 8 and iOS running in that

also... more rumours:

Quote
Microsoft dev here, the internal rumours are that early testing revealed just how many third party products that had code of the form

if(version.StartsWith("Windows 9")) { /* 95 and 98 */ } else {

and that this was the pragmatic solution to avoid that.
