What the f$#k happened to Windows 9? I guess Microsux doesnt know about the even number curse?

Apparently the whole decision was as simple as the fact that there are a lot of programs that look for something as stupid as

// Checks if Windows 95 or Windows 98
if (windowsVersion starts with 9){
do stuff
}

If that's true (and I have no reason to doubt you), that's a fucking riot!

It's a rumor that came from someone claiming to work for Microsoft on Reddit, which is slightly sketchy, and he says it was the internal rumor, and let me say that when working at a company that large internal rumors are often total fabrications.

But then there's this:
Over 4000 hits

Haha, Yeah, that's what I heard. So obviously, grain of salt. But hilarious and totally believable.
