Is there going to be a WoW 9.0?

General Discussion
Remember how Windows 8 was so terrible because they didn't listen to their customers and then they tried to improve it with Windows 8.1, but eventually just skipped to Windows 10 because 8 was so terrible?

Is the same thing going to happen with WoW?
Confirmed that Bill Gates secretly owns and runs both Microsoft and Blizzard.
9.0 is coming to consoles.
Yeah, but Windows 10 still feels a bit lackluster compared to the highly regarded Windows 7. What does this foretell us?
Except Microsoft skipped "9" because "10" was a big jump forward.

That the next xpac will be better than Bfa but not better than Legion?

No.

I've only been using Linux since the Burning Crusade Wow expansion (currently OpenSuse 42.3)

So the last Windows I had on a computer, was... Vista (shudder.)

New variants of Windows were on a 3-year release schedule before 10. Windows 8, though bad, wasn't an exception to this standard. Windows 10, however, is a (functionally) great OS and it makes perfect sense to ride it out.

So the Windows 8 Start Screen is basically Azerite Armor then?

Probably, but I swear I'll be livid if Blizzard shuts my computer down for a mandatory patch update.
