At the top of the tech-news has been about the Windows 10 builds that were accidentally released to the public. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has termed the incident, ‘inadvertent deployment’ that had affected the engineering system controlling release of builds to the Windows insider.
Microsoft has since released an apology expressly by Dona Sarkar, the head of Microsoft’s Windows Insider programme, reading “We apologies for this inconvenience and thank you for being a Windows Insider.” Reports also such suggest that only a very small proportion of Windows 10 received the builds.
Gadgets 360 cite a few problems for those who had received the builds. For those who received for the mobile build, their phones crushed after a reboot. Luckily, there is a way out, users can use the Windows Device Recovery Tool to recover and wipe the device.
Testers who received the build and installed on their PC have two options. The first option is to wait for a newer build from Microsoft (of which the dates are not yet certain as of yet). Alternatively, they can use the Windows 10 recovery option to roll back the install.
What To Take From The Incident…
While this may have been unfortunate, we have managed to get an early peep to what Microsoft has in store for its Windows users and we can speculate that:
Windows store seems to be having a major advancement that puts it at direct competition with the Apple Store. It has a dedicated section for selling eBooks. Edge is maintained as the devoted viewer of the eBooks. This sets a firm foot for Microsoft as a content provider in addition to the already successful Xbox Store and Groove Music.
A major redesign of the user interface can be speculated. The leaked Windows 10 project shows the removal of windows borders, the task bar now has a white background, which has black text while the colors of taskbar icons are seemingly removed.
The leak suggests that Microsoft is seeking to offer better support for its advanced users with high performance workstations. This simply means faster file sharing and an advanced hardware support for users with machines that have four CPUs and 6-terabyte memory.
The next speculation you want to hear is the official release dates of the update. Well, Microsoft has not said yet, though the anticipation is that it could be anytime soon.
