One update at a time, Microsoft is easing us into it, but Windows 10 stumbles a bit to its release set on July 29th of this year. Five million users part of Windows Insider program will be the firsts to receive a copy of the anticipated operating system, with other customers to wait patiently after.
The latest 10162 update is described by the company to be the most reliable and stable versions so far, but it has not been without its issues. Some users have reported problems with activating Windows 10 in lieu of the latest patch and cannot diagnose the bug.
Microsoft posted on their community forum regarding the error and claiming it as well known for several users and currently working on a fix. Once their service back-up will be running again, the message should go away in the next couple of days.
In the meantime, they urge the users not to panic and frantically search for the bug fixes on Google because the issue will not affect any aspect of the system. The message can be ignored and it does not mean that users should start questioning the stability of Windows 10 upon its release. The problem was declared as ‘expected’ and Microsoft engineers promise to have it fixed well before July 29th.
Windows 10 is set to be the promising version that will erase the bad memory of Window 8 from our minds that caused many users to aggressively reject it by keeping older versions such as XP or Windows 7 running on their computers. Microsoft is set on not repeating the experience. If it stands well within its habit, our high expectations are exactly where they should be.
Users are eagerly waiting for the return of the Start Menu button and other fixes reported with the previous version. Several new features have been added along with improvements on the old ones.
Microsoft is set to release the reserved copies in waves for those with a reservation for the software, improving the rollout experience for Window 10 users. After members of the Windows Insider program, reserved systems will be available for download with the company’s notification.
No official date has been given to users without a reserved copy. It is uncertain when Windows 10 will be available for purchase on the market, but it’s reminded that every genuine version of Windows 7 or Windows 8 will receive a free upgrade to Window 10 if downloaded within the first 12 months.
