Windows 10 RTM build might arrive this week
Microsoft Windows 10 will arrive starting on July 29 to the computers of those who signed up for the free update, although not all of them will be able to get it the first day. As previously revealed, Microsoft will roll out the new operating in phases to properly keep up with the demand and the process will take several days. Since the Redmond giant plans to have Windows 10 up and running on over a billion devices, it is no surprise that only Windows Insiders will get the new operating system on the first day.
On the other hand, Microsoft launched no less than three different builds to Windows Insider members last week and no RTM build made it online yet. According to WinBeta, Windows 10 build 10176 has been market as Release-to-Manufacturing build and is already compiled, waiting to be unleashed. Insiders familiar with the matter spoke to The Verge and confirmed this information, although there is no official statement yet.
However, this RTM build will not be a final one, since Windows 10 is the first Windows-as-a-service release. This is a result of Microsoft's shifting strategy for operating system updates and leads to an approach similar to Web browsers like Firefox or Opera. Toshiba will add a Cortana button to its latest computers, while Dell already announced that about 10 computers loaded with Windows 10 will come out at the end of this month. Now we just need to wait for the RTM build to officially come out, so stay tuned.
