Microsoft Announces Windows 10

· · · Software

Announced last week Tuesday on 30th September 2014, the next version of Microsoft’s Windows will be called Windows 10 and not Windows 9.

As shown in the screenshot below, there is a rumour going on in Reddit mentioning that lots of third party products are checking whether the Windows version starts with “Windows 9” which means it will match Windows 95 or Windows 98.

In this episode of WordPress Weekly, Marcus Couch and I travel to Singapore to interview Lester “GaMerZ” Chan. Chan has 23 different plugins in the plugin directory, amassing an incredible total download count of 12,241,325! This accounts for approximately 1.6% of all plugin downloads from the directory.

Chan explains how he handles support for 23 different plugins and offers suggestions to improve to make providing support easier. One of his suggestions is to give plugin authors the ability to close threads in their plugin’s support forums. Chan describes what the WordPress scene is like in Singapore and informs us that there a shortage of WordPress developers. Last but not least, he explains his role as “Tech Guy” for the Tech In Asia website which is powered by WordPress.
