Microsoft has not yet revealed that why the newborn was not named as Windows 9.Basically Windows 10 may be called as an upgrade to Windows 8, which was one of the failures of Microsoft.

When we analyze the history of Windows from Windows 95 to Windows 8.1, users were always reluctant to adopt new versions. Most versions were rejected due to the poor graphical user interface.
