Windows 10 will be without RTM. Manufacturers will sell new computers with build 10240
If you wait for Windows 10 RTM, and thus already using the Assembly 10240, you can be sure that you have the final version of the operating system. According to blogger Paul Carrot, which refers to the representative of Microsoft, Windows 10 will have the official «RTM», «final» or «gold» version, and the latter sent to the insiders, the Assembly is nothing like the same version that Microsoft has already sent to manufacturers to install on their new devices.
Going back to the past, when we were waiting for the previous versions of Windows, many of you will remember that as soon as it became aware of the fact that it had signed the final version of the operating system, niche sites certainly there was a news article titled «Windows Vista/7/8 has gone gold». However, with Windows 10, much has changed. Now Microsoft is moving to a model of «Windows as a service», which implies in particular that the development process will not break, and the operating system will never be completed.
This means that insiders are already using the best available versions. And at the end of July this same version will be sent, and the millions of ordinary users. However, Windows 10 Build 10240 will receive regular updates, not just patches to improve security and system stability, but updates with new features and capabilities. With these updates, most likely, will change the build number of the operating system.
