The topic discusses the number 9. In my view the number 8 is irrelevant in this context.
To be precise, the topic never discussed 9 except in the explanation of getting from version 8 to 10. The elephant in the room is that Microsoft's versions go from 8 to 10. Base 8 isn't a good explanation for that because then it should go from version 7 to 10 in that case. However, there isn't a really good explanation for Microsoft's naming conventions. Remember Windows 99? Well, if you're 15 or less, you wouldn't. (Maybe even 20 or less.) But that'd be a good explanation for the introduction of Windows 14, not 10.
Even the "explanation" lists version 10 twice in the series, so this really should be version 11 by its logic.

The best explanation is that Microsoft's naming convention is erratic and inconsistent. Don't expect it to make sense.
