Because of my eternal optimism I choose to believe another build will be out tomorrow during the RTM sign off. If I have any Windows 10 systems online I will be watching to see if any unusual network activity is happening.

For now, though, I will not have them online because I am troubleshooting what appears to be a problem with Uncorrectable errors on my Network Connection and I want to eliminate Windows 10 from being involved.

We will see what happens tomorrow...

Build 10240 = RTM
Microsoft has now finalized Windows 10, ready for its release later this month. Sources familiar with Microsoft's plans tell The Verge that the software giant has selected build 10240 as the final release to manufacturing (RTM) copy, allowing PC makers to start loading the software onto new machines ready for release.

Windows 10 is set to launch on July 29th, however the final build is already being distributed to Microsoft OEM's and Partners in preparation of launch day. Of course, as the build get's into more and more hands outside of Microsoft, screenshots begin to leak. WinBeta has obtained screenshots of what we believe is the Windows 10 RTM.

Ladies and gentlemen, I do believe I speak for a quorum of the forum when I state, quite matter of factly, that it was an extremely bad idea for them not to release the RTM bits on the official Microsoft website. That being said, all manner of ISO files are going to pop up, hopefully built off an authentic ESD (electronic software delivery) file, but as we do know, one bad apple can spoil the whole lot.

As all three of us. I have been standing on my head the last couple of weeks, wondering wtf is going on. I am almost about to say "MS, I forgive you for your sins of the past twelve months" lol.

Just for the history of the thread:
Microsoft has pushed Windows 10 build 10240 to fast ring (and slow) insiders today. For those who don't know, build 10240 is being widely reported as the Windows 10 RTM, which was compiled just a few days ago. The update has started rolling out just now, so if you can't see it yet give it a little bit of time for the update to roll out.

The 29th inches closer..
Microsoft has deactivated all of the pre-release keys given to Insiders for the Windows 10 Insider program. Basically, this means If someone doesn't have the Insider Preview currently installed on their PC, they will not be able to do a fresh install of Windows 10 Insider Preview and activate it with a pre-release key, even if it's build 10240.

For those who remain technically inclined, we have become aware of some TH2 builds, being enumerated as 10505. Although we cannot know for certain, some individuals believe that TH2 could be the public build that will appear in Windows Update on the 29th of July, 2015, or, TH2 could be a branch that is still in active development that we are not sure about. Should build 10505 become available on Windows Update, this may become the build we see on July 29th. It is important to remember that the release to manufacturer was sent to manufacturers, and Windows Insider Program members, so that they can continue testing (and making computers that don't look obsolete).

We may see a new build on the 29th, but this is not 100% certain. See also: Windows:10:Windows Update Builds - BetaWiki

This should get interesting.

I think I will go with the rumor TH2 will be released in October and be a fix for all the things Microsoft did not have time to fix prior to July 29th.

I see many posts by folks touting Windows 10 and trying to generating excitement in the New OS. I just believe a new OS should be able to generate its own excitement....Windows 10 does not seem to have that ability, at least not for me.

I'm not that excited either. This PC is a few years old so I'll probably stay with Windows 7 until I get a new one. There is really nothing that exciting in Windows 10 for me.
