They released info about Windows 10.
Yes, Windows 10, they skip number 9.
Why on Earth have they jumped nine? Thanks for the link.

Well Corel was first to skip versions...from Painter X3 (13) to Painter 2015...lol.
Here is some further info on Win 10:
I recommend watching while relaxing, it is good to know the OS because I think it will be a hit compared t windows 8
Painter runs flawlessly in Windows 10. It even ran through VM on junk PC we used to install OS on. I really like the OS btw.
I've been using this OS for a while now, I just want to get used to it, and someone is keeping the builds up to date for me. Anyway, it's really nice. I never encounter issues with it, all my programs work, my tablet works, my mouse works, all my software works.
I said how much I hated to use Windows 8, if windows 10 was bad I'd say it, but it's good, even the beta builds, the new browser or voice functionality from cortana is not available yet afaik.
But also, today the they said Windows 10 will be free for everyone who has windows 7 or windows 8.1 up until a year after launch. So if you have W7 or W8, you'll get a free upgrade.
They fixed several things in the latest update and outside of the autohiding taskbar bugging sometimes, it's a really good OS.
Anyway, the built in Windows 10 photo app is surprisingly good. It can do almost anything you'd expect, it even accepts RAW files, and it can select color patterns. You can't sharpen or fix barrel distortion, but it's still a good program.
If you shoot jpeg pictures and need minor adjustments and feel like photo manipulation programs are too complex and unwieldy, this works well. I am guessing lots of ppl will use this for their vacation pictures.
Some pics to show.
I've tried the Cortana voice functionality too, she seems to only understand my broken English, she doesn't seem to find what I am looking for half the time, and it's fun to play around with, but I don't expect ppl using this on a daily basis until she gets better at understanding what you mean. It's extremely similar to how Siri works, both in th eway it works, but also because after a while, many ppl stopped using Siri because it's just not that convenient as it seem at first. It's the same with Cortana, it seems fun at first, but then you just type in the site you need or click your bookmark instead of relying on voice, you type in the program you need or click it instead of asking cortana, you know.
