Windows 10 may be finished this Thursday [Rumor]

Recommended Posts

Insiders will never be happy. The problem is that the software complexity and size of Windows is extremely difficult to have everything polished to perfection. What Microsoft seeks is if the OS is stable, runs perfectly fine on system and that things show up when they should. And not really about: transparency on title bar, Windows Vista icons still present, etc. And bugs that only affect a small fraction of users which can be fixed via Windows Updates.

As a software developer myself, I can assure you, you are never done with ones software, you can also do more. The problem, and this is always a big problem: where do you draw the line?

You are 100% correct, and I think that people who expect any software to be bug free (especially complex things like operating systems and AAA games) is crazy. That said, it would be nice to get Windows 10 on the advertised date...

I hope so too. That thing is horrendous.

I really hope we can turn off this search bar.

hope you want to get to things like %appdata% unless you want to go to search it in file explorer

Everyone for themselves.. I think it is convenient.

me too. With win7, when i opened the start menu, unless the item was pinned, i would just search for it (easier than clicking all programs and looking for whatever it is you're looking for). So the search bar at the bottom saves me having to open the start menu, hell, i've rarely even used the start menu in windows 10.

For those of you wondering how to disable the search bar, right click the taskbar and then under the Cortana submenu, you can make it either a button or hide it completely.

Windows 10 Preview Build 10162 is working great for me! I've only had one BSOD and that was due to me needing to update my IGPU of my i7.

 

I plan on remaining with the Insider program for awhile unless I start having a lot of issues that I get tired of having to deal with. So far, so good! Fingers, legs and eyes all crossed! D'OH!

@deviant88 this was a good b8 but I am not biting, although I guess this response in itself is still giving you some of the attention you're looking for.

 

Is it divisible by 16? No? Then it's not RTM.

 

It's a candidate for RTM, if they do choose it for RTM then they'll just artificially up the build number to one that is divisible by 16 and 100.

never understood why the number has to fill that criteria, why?


this is one of the greatest thing that has happened to me recently, and it happened on this forum, those involved have my eternal gratitude http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/198850-update-alex-got-his-moto-g2-lets-get-a-moto-g-for-alexgoeshigh-unofficial/ :')

I am also interested as I never heard about that before.

I have no idea... My best guess is that its so they can easily identify internally which builds are RTM/public release just by if the build number is divisible by 16 and 100. :P

Good joke, do you think you need freezes or BSOD to be considered unstable?

 

Build 10159-10162 has audio broken and problems on some realtek and Asus audio cards, both my cards dont work anymore yet they worked a couple builds ago with same drivers.

http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/62085-Windows-10-Build-10159-Realtek-Sound-Problems

-I couldnt completely kill Cortana without getting errors, intrusive bullshit feature much?

-Some of the new modern control panel tabs still dont work properly, or close(crash?) sometimes.

-They still didnt fully integrate all old control panel like personalization and such into the new modern design, confusion much?

-The icons still suck are they really going to leave those as final? lmao, MS has gotten really low.

-No Aero, start menu transparency =/= aero, the rest of the windows looks pathetic with eye burning white everywhere, no dark theme explorer.

 

I dont think they fixed most issues in 10176, if thats a release candidate id be damned, no wonder they give it for free, they barely worked on it.

-It is not Microsoft's responsibility to develop Realtek's drivers for them. Are Realtek's drivers certified for Windows 10? They will probably have those Windows 10 drivers ready when Windows 10 releases.

 

-Which ones? The builds you are using are still pre-release so of course not everything is going to be perfect. But between two builds last week (which had 1 week of dev time between them) they fixed 300 bugs. Which means in 5 business days more or less they fixed 300 bugs, so they are still capable of fixing many more things before release. In fact the builds we have right now are not representative of where they actually are today in development. Even build 10162 is weeks old from a development standpoint (it takes 1-2 days to compile a build, then at least 1 week minimum of internal testing, then they take time to evaluate if they even want to release the build to Insiders or not).

 

-Personalization is in the modern Settings app. What personalization settings are you referring to that are not? (This also has nothing to do with stability or bugs.)

 

-Your opinion on icons have nothing to do with stability or bugs.

 

-Your opinion about Aero has nothing to do with stability or bugs. By the way, they are not going to carbon-copy Windows 7 Aero into Windows 10. Not happening. Period.

 

-Nobody outside of Microsoft, certainly not you, knows what the state of stability/bugs is in build 10176.

 

Lastly, no software made by any person or any company ever has nor ever will ship without bugs. Especially not software on the scale and complexity as an operating system.

Yes. It's possible. You can select whether you want the full search box, only a search icon or hide it completely.

 

I'll just put this here...

OK so there is not much to say about this other than see for yourself.

On the Wzor web page there are new screen shots from newest Windows 10 version and one screen is from Calendar application and there is date for RTM Windows 10 version relase. (RTM sands for Relase to Manufacturing).

 

Source: http://wzascok.livejournal.com/45370.html

Screen:

 

<snip>

 

I doubt that Microsof will make Windows 10 fully available in Thursday but there may be copies appearing on the internet. So far I think it will still be relased 29. July 2015 as was said before.

I like how the original poster of the picture (not the op on this forum) managed to leave in the confidentiality clause shown on the screen when he/she put this out. LOL

Moron.... :rolleyes:
