This build is intended for Microsoft partners and can be downloaded from various file sharing websites already, while the next official release for the public is expected to launch in January.

A video that shows details of a new Windows 10 build went online last week and can still be found online, although it is not an official movie coming from Microsoft. Yesterday, Windows 10 build 9888 was reportedly spotted online "on a number of different file-sharing websites," reveals WinBeta. While they do not mention a single such website, it is not hard at all to locate the ISO and download it.

Microsoft Windows 10 build 9888 brings the following new features:

  • Offline maps
  • Updated animations for opening and closing windows
  • New default application for settings with a search box included
  • Better-organized menus (unified context menus on the desktop, not fully working yet)

Build 9888 leaked from one OEM partner of the Redmond giant so Microsoft does not provide any kind of support to those who use it. They mentioned a few weeks ago that a new official release for the public will come in early 2015, most likely in January.

Various sources familiar with the matter also say that Microsoft plans to hold a special event in late January to introduce the build mentioned above and to present the first Consumer Preview build as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
