Have the stated when the anticipated final release date for this is yet?

My ancient machine is on it's last legs and I really don't want Win8. I have to decide whether to go with Win7, make the jump to a Mac, or try and hold on to see what Win10 is like.

Microsoft said at a 30 September launch event that the Windows 10 release date will be in mid 2015, but they haven't revealed exactly when.

My guess would be October next year with an RTM date of around August.

Just done the update to build 9879.  Boy on a laptop with 4Gig of RAM it sure is slow   Is now taking 3~ 4 minutes to run up Outlook 2013  compared to about 20 seconds on the last two builds.   Guess there will be another build soon..  Will try it tonite when I get home on my desktop with 8 gig of ram.  Interesting this is that every time I do an update to Win 10, the  Office 2013  trial is extended by another 30 days..




Regards,

Does anyone here know when the next official build coming out with some of the features in built 9901 are ? I considered upgrading via usb but then I can't use the auto update to go to the next build. The last few builds since technical preview have been decidedly average.

Have been running 9901 on my Surface Pro 3 has been running very smoothly, Not too concerned about having to do a clean install to upgrade as and it's only a secondary PC to me.

21st January I would say. There is a Windows 10/Windows Phone 10 consumer event that day. New build and features should be announced then.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Hmm well I upgraded my primary notebook (Secondary device for me). I have Build 9926 but it took me about 3 minutes to find a few bugs.

Most notablely the issues with the "new" new start menu, which differs from the previous builds and has a number of issues one of which is detailed here: 

http://techdows.com/2015/01/how-to-get-build-9879s-start-menu-in-windows-10-build-9926.html

Is there a better fix than reverting to the old version? Do they have an update (Other than RTM) which addresses this?

There are a few times where I have done updates, and clicked the restart and nothing happens, and had to reboot manually. Where is the best place to report those, though assuming the age of the build I imagine a number of people already reported it.

Did you do all the patches to the latest build? There are a fair number now.

Well I set my update speed to fast and Updates say up to date as of 2 minutes ago so I assume so. Apparently KB3034229 might be the solution, but I am not seeing it available for download from WUpdate or In my installed History.

On one PC I installed Classic Shell to fix the new start menu problems..

Just got my first wow moment with Windows 10 - Reading today on Engadget an article states: 

Not fond of having to wait (and wait, and wait) while you download Windows updates from Microsoft's servers? You might not have to when Windows 10 arrives. The Vergehas noticed that a leaked version of the operating system lets you grab updates from other computers, whether they're on your local network or online -- yes, it's a peer-to-peer network for patches. Besides accelerating the upgrade process, the option could save precious bandwidth (important on capped data plans) if you have a multi-PC household. There's no telling when this feature will show up in a Windows 10 build you can try, assuming Microsoft doesn't get cold feet. A new public test release is reportedly coming soon, though, so you probably won't have to wait very long.

That is a WIN feature, though it will be interesting to see how it's implemented, as I wonder what kind of network membership will be required for it, and I also have some concerns about it being an attack vector. I am sure they will secure it, but hopefully not to the point where it requires lots of additional setup.
