Windows 10 technical preview - November update (9879)

Windows 10

Windows Technical evaluation team has release a new build for technical preview for Windows 10 yesterday. The latest build is 9879 (November build) and will be available through windows update or ISO installation that can be downloaded from here

Windows 10 is the latest Operating system that was launched this year and would be available to the market somewhere in 2015. It will be a new stepping stone for Microsoft as the new windows will be available for all screen sizes including Mobile phone, tablets, notebook and desktop PC.

To be one of the Windows Insider evaluation member, the registration is pretty easy and once registered the installer download would be available to download.

It is advised to install the Windows 10 evaluation copy on a spare PC as it is still in testing condition and would actually have bugs that might be problematic if installed on your primary computer.

Here is some excerpt from Microsoft on what will Windows 10 bring 

Technical preview PC productivity

The early technical preview of Windows 10 demonstrates new levels of flexibility, navigation and familiarity through the Windows experience. Features include these:

Expanded Start menu. The familiar Start menu is back, providing quick one-click access to the functions and files that people use most, and it includes a new space to personalize with favorite apps, programs, people and websites.

Apps that run in a window. Apps from the Windows Store now open in the same format that desktop programs do. They can be resized and moved around, and have title bars at the top allowing users to maximize, minimize and close with a click.

Snap enhancements. Working in multiple apps at once is easier and more intuitive with snap improvements. A new quadrant layout allows up to four apps to be snapped on the same screen. Windows will also show other apps and programs running for additional snapping, and it will even make smart suggestions on filling available screen space with other open apps.

New Task view button. The new Task view button on the task bar enables one view for all open apps and files, allowing for quick switching and one-touch access to any desktop created.

Multiple desktops. Instead of too many apps and files overlapping on a single desktop, it’s easy to create and switch between distinct desktops for different purposes and projects — whether for work or personal use.
