    I don't think they have jumped them. Many builds are internal, possibly on minor issues, which are not in the published sequence.
    FWIW. This was probably the jump they are referring to. Even a jump back to 99xx just before the last:
    10.0.10000.0.fbl_lad.150119-2010
    10.0.9925.0.fbl_mobs_dev02.150119-2000
    10.0.10000.0.fbl_ie.150119-1730
    10.0.10000.0.fbl_photos.150119-1721
    10.0.10000.0.fbl_outlook.150119-1721
    10.0.9925.0.fbl_enf.150119-1700

    As you can see, judging by the titles, they all refer to different branches. - But, we''ll find out shortly.

    Just given up watching, after one hour. Mostly an advertising intro and intro to Cortana. I do a catch up when I get my hands on the real thing.

    No rumour. They are discussing it on the Live meeting as we write.

    Watch the live stream of today's Windows 10 event right here
    Wow what a briefing.. Slightly disappointing with the news that the next Windows 10 Build will be released sometime in the coming week. Although this was more than made up for with some of the news offered in the briefing. The future has arrived and it looks like Holograms will be part of our culture very soon.

    If you missed the briefing you can watch the whole thing right here:

    If you don't want to sit through the meting, here is an excellent summary of the major points presented.

    http://www.theverge.com/2015/1/21/7865539/microsoft-windows-10-event-what-you-need-to-know

    .Emphasis was on Cortana and the Holograph device. Both items I would not have too much interest in - The latter due to the size of my wallet.
    I am interested to see how "Spartan performs against Chrome, as they are both stripped down browsers.

    The Xbox feature (Xbox on your desktop", I wasn't too clear about. Probably my ancient brain could not grasp the concept. I use a couple of time wasters xbox games now on my Windows 8.1 desktop. But it did seem to be quite a lot more than that - very much like Skype.
    Anyway, a couple of these items we will not see for a few months yet, so I am still anxious to see how the January build shapes up.

    A wee pause, after installation, whilst I searched for the Windows update. It is gone from the old Control Panel. Cortana available if anyone wants it. Otherwise, so far, not much to add, except that a few thing have moved around and now need a little nav retraining lol. Personally, I am not to happy with the new "Settings" window. Bit too bland.

    The new update app is proving to be a nightmare.. I tried to stop driver installs.. It ignores the setting and downloads them anyway.
    You can't right click on an update to remove it... I mean wtf. In my opinion they've basically ruined something that worked.. Just about. Nevertheless I've sent plenty of feedback you can be sure of that!

    I am not too happy, at first analysis. I am having difficulty with inactive desktop icons and windowing with a couple of items I have now installed.. But, I will give it a chance.

    I also found a few areas still under construction. If you open the Photo app and click on Albums or Folders you'll see what I mean. I wonder if they'd swop my working keyboard light for a working WU app?
