And that could impact application and even web site compatibility in the new OS.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-confirms-windows-10-will-also-be-version-10-internally" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/microsoft-confirms-windows-10-will-also-be-version-10-internally#comments Windows 10 Sat, 22 Nov 2014 14:29:00 +0000 46631 at http://winsupersite.com First Windows 10 Consumer Preview Leaks Appear http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/first-windows-10-consumer-preview-leaks-appear <div class="field-deck"> Winter is coming </div> <div class="node-body article-body">If you're following along with the development of Windows 10, you know that the current Windows Technical Preview builds are geared towards businesses and tech enthusiasts. 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.
