This is the third public Windows 10 build released in a month and marks the long-awaited return of Aero Glass.

Microsoft unveiled yesterday a new Insider Preview build of Windows 10 during the Build 2015 conference, also unveiling some long-term plans they have for this product. The main goal of the Redmond giant is "to see Windows 10 on one billion devices within two to three years of Windows 10’s availability – the first platform version, in any ecosystem, to be available on one billion devices." Remains to see if that turns from dream to reality, but for now it looks like Microsoft succeeds in picking up the pace of Windows 10 preview releases.

Microsoft Windows 10 build 10074 has been released to both the Slow and Fast rings of the Windows Insider program and comes one week after the last update, and 30 days after the previous one. This means ISO images will be available to all those who would like a clean install although the update also gets delivered via Windows Update, as usual. 

With roughly 90 days left to launch, Windows 10 build 10074 brings Aero Glass back and a rich set of various visual changes, more Cortana capabilities (weather info and stock reports, for example), as well as Continuum improvements for hybrid touch-capable devices. In addition to these, the new build also fixes a bug that came with last week's release and did not Windows desktop apps to launch from the Start menu.
