7. What is the real version number of Windows 8? Oct 27, 2012, 02:35 MeanJim
 
The author could have saved a lot of speculation and writing by just opening a Windows Explorer window, hit ALT, click Help and About Windows to see that Windows 8 is in fact Windows version 6.2.

The Windows NT code started at version 3.1. They dropped the version numbers with Windows 2000, but it was NT version 5.0. Windows XP was NT 5.1, Windows Vista was NT 6.0, Windows 7 is 6.1 and Windows 8 is 6.2. If you want to get technical about it and consider Windows NT 3.1 as NT 1.0, then Windows 8 is really Windows NT version 4.2.
