    It definitely looks like more fixes are on the way for the current Build of 9879 as we won't be seeing any new builds until after Christmas:

    I just got a new update when I booted my computer this morning.
    It restarted before it got to the desktop and took quite a while with a blue screen saying working on updates or something like that.

    Unfortunately the keyboard lights still don't work.

    Well I thought I'd give build 9888 a try and see what's what. Still no keyboard lights working (for me at least) and really I couldn't see much difference between it and Build 9879. Oh well back to 9879.....

    LOL. Build 9888 was not an ongoing update, but an in-house build. I believe it's only purpose was to test out the blue screen issue, which was subsequently released as an update. I did the same Ross. could't hold back on my curiosity. I guess if we want to have a nosy look at pirated builds, in the middle of a testing period, we take the consequences.

    I have deleted it now and gone back to the official sequence.

    Yeah I've gone back but do believe we'll be seeing this build again in the consumer preview unless something new comes along which is entrely possible.

    I raised this point on another forum. It led to quite a few posts but no official verdict. I think we can probably interpret it as being a free for all to download, but, unless you have a legit licensed copy of Windows 8, you will need the key to activate it - which, of course, you will have to buy. Keep in mind that the insider program was also opened to Windows 7 users. I cannot see MS giving 5 million users a free copy of the next windows.

    Until we are closer to the final release I would view anything said as simply 'a possiblility' and not something definite.

    Hi

    I bought several DVDs for Windows 7 at the time for (I think) $29.95 each.
    They sent me a special link or code that let me buy them through Amazon at the low price.

    One went to my nephew to update his computer one I used on my own, and one I had for a long time until I gave it to a friend of mine who wanted to update his computer from XP.

    I still have a install disk for Windows XP with a serial number that's never been used, and probably never will now.

    They need one!

    Every time I try to use IE, I give up and go back to Chrome or Firefox.
    They need to make it as easy to use as Chrome is.

    When Windows10 will be releasing? I just want to try the beta version, I guess it will be different from Windows 8.1 and similar to Windows 7.

    So what build is this one?

    After reading the article, I'm left with more questions then I got answers. Still, I'm really looking forward to 10 release to the public.

    No posts for five days?
    1. Windows 10 is so good, no one has anything about which to complain (LOL!!)
    2. Everyone is poised waiting for the next build.
    3. Everyone is bored with the whole thing!!
