Better testers of Microsoft windows 10 have been wondering the status of their licenses when Microsoft announced that windows 10 will be officially released on 29th July.
To those who have registered and downloaded a pre release build of windows 10, on July 29th, will receive athe GA (General Availability) build of OS.
The Windows Insider program has been a huge success for Microsoft with millions of users trying out the OS and the program will continue after the release of Windows 10.
What is less commonly known is that Windows Insiders will be a critical part of the Windows 10 support program going forward.
There will be several support steps but what’s pertinent is this:
- Windows 10 updates will start with the engineering team at Microsoft.
- Next they will be deployed to a wider audience at Microsoft to validate the updates and fixes.
- After passing that level of testing, Windows 10 will move on to Windows Insiders
- Insiders test and validate before the updates hit the Windows 10 Service Branches.
