We’re so close to Microsoft’s Windows 10 release (July 29) that we can taste it. With exactly two weeks until the big update hits, it sounds like Microsoft has finalized everything to ensure for a smooth launch.
According to The Verge, the Redmond company has chosen build 10240 as the final release to manufacturing (RTM) copy, which means OEMs can start loading the software onto new machines. However, new PCs with the software pre-installed won’t be available on launch day, so your best bet is to upgrade your existing machine to Windows 10 if you want the software on day one.
“We understand that Microsoft is signing off on the build internally today, and may announce the RTM publicly by the end of the week or choose to ignore the milestone and focus on the launch,” The Verge wrote.
Windows 10 testers should get a taste of build 10240 first, with some bug fixes and other enhancements expected to follow. Microsoft has rolled out several Windows 10 builds to testers over the past few months, slowly giving folks a taste of the software’s biggest features.
When the final build becomes available in a few weeks, it’ll introduce users to Microsoft Edge, Cortana, and the return of the Start Menu, among other features.
