Windows 10 Build 10240 could be the final RTM

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft is expected to push Windows 10 to RTM in just a few days, and while the company remains tightlipped on everything related to this key milestone for the development of the new operating system, more information emerges via unofficial sources that provide us with a glimpse into Redmond’s plans.

After having released Windows 10 build 10166 for users enrolled in the fast ring channel of the Windows Insider program, it turns out that the company is internally testing a new RTM candidate that performs very well and could be the final version that everyone could get on July 29.

Microsoft is now evaluating Windows 10 build 10240 as an RTM candidate, and Win-Community.ru claims that this could be the one if everything goes well (and until now, it seems that everything is indeed running smoothly). The full string of this build is 10240.16384.150709-1700 and it’s part of th1, which is the RTM branch for the new operating system.

Keep in mind that this information is still unconfirmed and shouldn’t be taken for granted unless Microsoft indeed provides us with a statement, but with Windows 10 just around the corner, we only have to wait a few more days to get our hands on the final version of the operating system.

On July 29, insiders will get the upgrade to the RTM version of Windows 10, while upgraders coming from Windows 7 and 8.1 will start to receive the final tidbits in waves, depending on the compatibility issues that might be detected on their computers.

Microsoft says that eventually everyone will get Windows 10 via Windows Update, despite the fact that compatibility issues could still exist. In case this happens, the upgrade will be provided, but you’ll be offered several options, including installing the operating system and then contacting the app developer or hardware manufacturer to address these compatibility problems.
