But here's the weird bit: According to the firm, fully 90 percent of testers are in that slow ring.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-build-9879-heads-out-slow-ring-testers" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-10-build-9879-heads-out-slow-ring-testers#comments Windows 10 Tue, 25 Nov 2014 16:07:00 +0000 46761 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Issues Windows 10 Build 9879 as ISO, Plus One Fix http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-issues-windows-10-build-9879-iso-plus-one-fix <div class="field-deck"> Or as we must now call it, the November Update </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft improved the latest Windows 10 pre-release build of 2014 in two important ways today. It made the build available via downloadable ISOs, letting testers clean install this build directly to a PC or VM, without having to first install the previous preview builds over each other. And it issued a fix for build 9879 that it says addresses a major BSOD error.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-issues-windows-10-build-9879-iso-plus-one-fix" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-issues-windows-10-build-9879-iso-plus-one-fix#comments Windows 10 Mon, 24 Nov 2014 22:59:00 +0000 46721 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft is Opening Windows Store to Businesses http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-opening-windows-store-businesses <div class="node-body link-body">When Microsoft first announced Windows 10 back in early October, it did so at an event that was billed as being focused on businesses. But that wasn't really the case, and most of the short launch event just highlighted some of the user interface tweaks that will make Windows great on traditional PCs again. Since then, however, Microsoft has opened up about its plans a bit more. And one of the big changes coming in Windows 10 is that the firm will allow businesses to customize Windows Store and manage the delivery of apps to their users.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/ms-store-hero.jpg?1416866776" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/microsoft-opening-windows-store-businesses" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows 10 Mon, 24 Nov 2014 22:04:00 +0000 46711 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Confirms that Windows 10 will also be Version 10 Internally http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-confirms-windows-10-will-also-be-version-10-internally <div class="field-deck"> Sort of </div> <div class="node-body article-body">It may seem like an esoteric subject, but the recent rumors about Microsoft changing the version number of Windows 10 are true: In this release, the software giant will align the name of the product with the version number, the first time it's done so since the mid-1990s.

But in early 2015, Microsoft will release a Consumer Preview for Windows 10, and those builds will provide a better look at many new end user features. This week, the first Consumer Preview builds allegedly leaked online, so here's a quick peek.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/first-windows-10-consumer-preview-leaks-appear" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/first-windows-10-consumer-preview-leaks-appear#comments Windows 10 Fri, 21 Nov 2014 19:13:00 +0000 46611 at http://winsupersite.com Microsoft Will Try to Fix Windows 10 Build 9879 http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-will-try-fix-windows-10-build-9879 <div class="field-deck"> Cross your fingers </div> <div class="node-body article-body">I've got some good news for tech enthusiasts who are beta-testing Windows 10 through the Windows Technical Preview: Microsoft intends to fix the incredibly buggy and unstable third milestone release of Windows 10—build 9879—with a "bugcheck hotfix." And this fix will be included in the version of the build that "slow ring" testers will get soon.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-will-try-fix-windows-10-build-9879" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-will-try-fix-windows-10-build-9879#comments Windows 10 Thu, 20 Nov 2014 14:18:00 +0000 46531 at http://winsupersite.com The Dark Side of Tech Enthusiasm http://winsupersite.com/dark-side-tech-enthusiasm <div class="node-body link-body">It's interesting watching Microsoft trying to develop Windows 10 openly, and under the ever-vigilant eyes of its biggest fans. After six-plus years of secretive silence under the previous regime, this new more transparent approach is both laudable and welcome. But as Microsoft is discovering, the open approach also has a downside: its most vocal fans are also its most vocal critics when things don't go their way.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://winsupersite.com/site-files/winsupersite.com/files/feedback2.jpg?1416333889" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/dark-side-tech-enthusiasm" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows 10 Tue, 18 Nov 2014 18:04:00 +0000 46441 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Technical Preview Build 9879: The Morning After http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-build-9879-morning-after <div class="field-deck"> This one ain't pretty </div> <div class="node-body article-body">So I think it's fair to say that we've taken a major step back in this latest build of the Windows Technical Preview. Obviously, there are some nice improvements here—and the seismic shift that's happening with OneDrive—but the big news here, perhaps, is that this is the first build that isn't stable or reliable enough to use regularly. And unless this is fixed soon, I may have to take the unusual step of moving back to a previous build, or to Windows 8.1.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-build-9879-morning-after" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-build-9879-morning-after#comments Windows 10 Mon, 17 Nov 2014 15:30:00 +0000 46391 at http://winsupersite.com Windows Technical Preview Install Guide: Clean Install http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/windows-technical-preview-install-guide-clean-install <div class="field-deck"> Simple, but with some extra steps as new builds appear </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Since I dive head-first into every conceivable software release imaginable, my desktop PC often gets into an unstable and unreliable state.
