I think most active Windows Insiders have been hoping for a new build of Windows 10 today since it has been three weeks since build 10130 was released but unfortunately that build is not coming. We did however learn quite a bit about the last stages of the Windows Insider Program in these last 40 days or so before the release of Windows 10. In a blog post over at the Blogging Windows website, Gabe Aul our intrepid Ring Master, has provided information on key changes to the Windows 10 Insider Program related to the final builds before Windows 10 is made available to everyone on 29 July 2015. It all boils down to this – in order to get Windows 10 RTM (Home or Pro) on 29 July 2015 you need to take a few steps first. After following the those steps you will have any other pre-release builds delivered to your system and then the final version of Windows 10 will arrive for your Insider Preview based system on 29 July 2015. Through that upgrade process it will be properly activated for the life of that device. That build will be delivered via Windows Update just like all the others in the Insider Program. Connecting the Microsoft Account to a Windows 10 install is a change only for Windows Insiders. After the final build is delivered on 29 July no Microsoft account is needed to upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 or 8.1 although that still doesn’t mean your Microsoft account might store your activation code for later use. These changes are being implemented now to wring out some of the infrastructure that will be used to continue a Windows Insider program after the release of Windows 10. Microsoft plans to ask Insiders to continue receiving updated builds of Windows 10 so new features, fixes and updates can be tested and of course they will continue looking for feedback before those changes are promulgated to the final build. If you have no interest in continuing to be an Insider there will of course be an option to leave the program...We have the steps needed to complete this process posted at windows8newsinfo forum.
