Even back in the days of DOS, there was a tendency to skip the even-numbered versions
And we all know Microsoft decided to skip the odd number and go straight from 8 to 10.

More likely it was the same reason that there is unlikely to be a Windows 13. And, considering that Windows 7 was one of the most successful versions, I doubt the odd-number explanation.

They might have just been trying to catch up with Apple - now both MacOS and Windows are at version 10.

Seems the bug fix may have a bug... Link

Maybe they should have gone straight from 10.12 to 10.14 tongue

American's are usually very superstitious about 13. Maybe because it is 10.13 they thought they would be ok?

Who knows how American minds work, especially Californian ones? wink

The problem definitely isn't universal- I can connect to shares OK here, although I haven't tried all possible combinations of all machines (and nor do I intend to!).

That's nothing!

Windows is on sub-version 1703 (or 1709 for cutting-edge users).

Are those "genuine" sub-versions or build numbers?

I'm currently on MacOS 10.13.1, build number 17B1002. The 17B suggests that the numbering system may have started with MacOS 1, whatever that was crazy
