Windows 9 is Windows 10

Microsoft will call the next version Windows 10. This is made to market a jump from the unsuccessful Windows 8. So all that is written about Windows 9 here is about Windows 10.
It is a way to stay in the media.

You should have a separate PC for that. For some reason I got this message:

..so you will be needing the Windows operating system to download and install this one.

It is not a standalone OS - you need to ruin a working Windows installation by the looks of it.
If you do so; you will get all of these benefits:
