    Sonny, could you explain what the RTM Escrow stage means? Does it mean anything more than it won't be adding additional eye candy?

    If someone asked me, based on what I have seen with the Insiders program builds, would I recommend Windows 10, I would say not only NO, but heck NO.

    If Microsoft is even floating the idea of releasing this OS to the public, I feel there must be one heck of a disconnect from the Insider Users.

    Saltgrass, I have no idea what RTM Escrow stage means. Like you I would not recommend Windows 10. Atleast not right now. I went back to Windows 8.1 Pro and will stay there until the final version comes out. I will try it but no guaranties that I will keep it. It is scary to think that they might be releasing it to the public the way it is.

    Thanks Bassfisher, I know since I read the referenced link. I just wanted to know if he had any special information from his inside contacts. ;)

    Wouldn't it be depressing if you found out Microsoft has had the RTM in the can for the last eight months?

    Escrow , if anyone is at all interested, is a financial term, which was pirated by MS, and probably many others. some time ago.
    Essentially it means money, or funds, are being frozen, or held over, awaiting further investigation.- This would, as an example, be the case of bank accounts held by a convicted criminal.
    As is obvious, putting it into a loose IT interpretation, it means, as we have surmised, that the development branch has stopped (development) and is now concentrating on cleaning up.
    I can think of several ways to turn the letters into rude and sarcastic mnemonics.
