Windows 10 is expected to launch in the summer, and some unofficial reports have claimed that RTM is projected to be reached in June or July, so we’re not very far from the moment when the Redmond-based tech giant will finally sign off the operating system.
After releasing build 10122, Microsoft’s Gabe Aul, head of the Windows Insider Program, has explained that Windows 10 is becoming a mature product and that the new version comes with the best stability and reliability so far, so although the preview build is supposed to be installed by technical users, running it on a main computer should become possible very soon.
“I think you’ll see that this build is a bit more stable and polished than the last one, which is to be expected as we begin to stabilize for the public release this summer,” Aul says.
“From here on out you’ll see fewer big feature changes from build to build, and more tuning, tweaking, stabilizing, and polishing. The Insider Previews continue to be aimed at very technical people who want to play with pre-released code, but I think you’ll feel more and more comfortable using this build and future builds on your day to day systems.”
From now on, Microsoft will focus on fixing bugs and improving the existing features, so less new options will actually be introduced in the coming builds.
This does makes sense, especially because we’re nearing RTM, and people close to the matter have suggested that Microsoft is already working on the first update for Windows 10 that could debut later this year.
Basically, this first update is supposed to bring features that weren’t ready for RTM, including support for Google Chrome extensions in Microsoft Edge and a few other goodies that Microsoft decided to hold back because more work was needed.
The big launch of Windows 10 could take place in late July or early August, but Microsoft is yet to reveal all details about this, so expect full information to be provided at the WPC conference in early July.
