Can we start calling Windows 10...........Windows X

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This was inspired by several other posts.....

 

 

 

I'd like to start a new Trend. One that I think is a nicer name than Window 10.

 

Can we call it Windows X. So now the Apple fanboys will be so hopelessly confused when we refer to what version of Windows we're running. Since it is suppose to be the last version of Windows then we won't ever need to change.

 

It'll just be Windows X forever :).............

 

Because X = 10 in roman numerals. You see this is to make fun of apple's old naming Scheme of "OS X". So now Apple fanboys will be confused, Microsoft will be confused, and anybody you talk to will be confused :D. So next time you need to RMA something, say that it was running on a PC with "Windows X".

 

Thoughts and opinions?

i like the idea. i hate the name windows 10 (though it's been windows 98, 2000, 7, 8, etc.), so that's a nice change. i'll change the name to windows x. in fact, im gonna contact microsoft support to fool them (since they're run by a bunch of indians i bet who don't even know roman numerals) no offense, just my observations

MSX sounds more like OS X tho even if it's actually said like OS ten

But who cares what Macaroni fanboys pronounce it as. We need an OS which sounds next gen and better than "OS X".

 

because that's just stupid.

 

We need something bold simple and powerful. Hence, WIndows X.
