There's lots of talking going around about the free upgrade. I'd like to get myself Windows 8 just to try it and be able to get the free upgrade to Windows 10. Why is it now Windows 10 instead of 9?

If months of leaks and rumors are accurate, Microsoft will undo some of the most drastic changes in Windows 8, but it will also kick off a major transformation for Windowsâ€”one that's long overdue. Microsoft is likely to reveal at least some of these changes at a September 30 event.
