Hey guys

If anyone is interested, I quickly tested LW 11.6.3 on MS Windows 10 Tech Preview.

I know, LW12 on Win7 would be more interesting :-)

Cheers, Marander

What happened to Windoze 9? :)

Cause 8 was a flop... No probably because number 9 is considered unlucky in Japan.

To add to the confusion, it's actually 6.4 internally ;-)

Don't suppose Windows OSX would have much traction... :D

That's because 6.4 is considered lucky in... Peru. :p

I really like that a proper start menu with shutdown button etc. is back and set as default. For touch devices the monster tile screen is still there. Also there some new configuration settings for the start menu. But overall there's no added value over 7 for me at the moment, so it will just stay in it's vm.

I'm immediately disappointed in Windows 10 if it does not allow maximized windows. :)

Microsoft said that it was because (lazy) programmers check if the OS is Windows 95 or 98 by checking if the version name starts with "windows 9" and then they execute code specific to those OSes. So calling it Windows 9 would have messed up a lot of software.

Now this makes really sense, so it's not really considering Japanese culture...

As far as I know, Windows 9 is an internal version, quite different from Windows 8 and now 10. Normally Windows 10 would have been 'cloud only', but that was a bridge too far at the moment.

I think they just really wanted to say "This is not like windows 8," and they nailed it.

or maybe just seven 8 nine.
