New Windows 10 for PC Builds to launch soon

Windows 10 logoWindows 10 was launched on July 29, and Microsoft finally completed the first major development step of the PC version, which was entirely based on insider feedback since the debut of the program in October 2014.

But just like the company announced a couple of months ago, the Windows Insider program will continue to exist even after the release of Windows 10, so Microsoft is now getting ready to release new builds that would allow testers to try out the future improvements to the operating system before everyone else.

Windows 10 guru Gabe Aul has announced that new Windows 10 for PCs builds will be released soon, and while he hasn't provided any information on timing, it's expected to see the first post-Windows 10 RTM build before the end of the month.

What's more, Microsoft has also started allowing new registrations for the Windows Insider program, which is living proof that the company is getting ready for new builds that need to be tested by its insiders.

Basically, the upcoming builds will be the first flavors of the first Windows 10 updates, as Microsoft is already working on what could be a major release for the operating system bringing tons of improvements and new features.

This major update is expected sometime in October, but there were some reports that a so-called service release 1, which would be specifically focused on bug fixing and performance optimizations, would arrive this month.

But the first major update won't be here before late September or October, we hear, and it will bring new features such as extension support for Microsoft Edge, which is clearly the number one improvement that its browser needs to compete against Chrome and Firefox.

Microsoft says that it wants Chrome extensions to work in Edge with zero tweaks, but it remains to be seen if the company can complete all the work in time for the September/October release.
