Now before you start pelting stones at the author and start claiming him to be an imaginative three year old, let me tell you that this is a work of imagination.
Yes, this is. This is something how we at TheREM envision the future to be. Let it be known as the musings of a curious mind.
You can either diss them off as an improbable occurrence or read them and join us in our curiosity – what could the future probably look like?
With Microsoft surprising a lot of people by naming the next version of windows as Windows 10 instead of Windows 9, many users have been surprised and taken by shock, they expected that Microsoft will in fact continue the series that it is progressing in, and windows 7 and windows 8 would be followed by windows 9.
However they were actually taken aback when the new name was released as windows 10, and many opportunistic people who had booked the domains featuring windows 9 were quite disappointed.
Other than that the common folk at large were scratching their head on why was such a move taken by the company.
However, this might have been done from the point of view being that Microsoft already has too many versions of windows that begin with the number 9, as in, windows 95 and windows 98, both of which had been fairly successful and this time out they decided to do something new.
This also has a symbolic representation of them breaking the chain of monotony and doing something which is different, it brings in an element of surprise and unpredictability, which has been something the brand has been unable to actually do in real life.
I wonder if the name windows 9 would eventually be brought back some day when windows will try to focus on the touch-screen aspect.
However that is a speculation for the future. What I am wondering on is if the next version of windows that launches be titled as windows 11?
It might just happen as the number 11 can be stylized as X1. However, the company might end up surprising yet another time by naming it something totally different, maybe not even a number.
