Windows 10 RTM delayed

Windows 10 logoWindows 10 was expected to reach RTM today, but it turns out that Microsoft has actually missed the deadline and has set a new target for next week.

While there's no official announcement on this, some reports citing company insiders reveal that Microsoft now hopes to push Windows 10 to RTM in the middle of next week, especially because work on the new operating system continues at a very fast pace.

Microsoft is trying to fix the very latest bugs it found in the operating system before the OS is pushed to RTM and hence released to manufacturers, thus trying to provide a more stable experience from the get-go.

Fixes can also be shipped once the OS is signed off, but Microsoft is aiming to improve the operating system in order to be more stable and reliable from the first install, without the need for updates.

Windows 10 RTM delayed

This small delay for Windows 10 RTM doesn't change Microsoft's plans too much, as the company will still start shipping the operating system to everyone on July 29.

OEMs, however, will have less time to install the OS on their devices in anticipation of the July 29 launch, but it's believed that it'll still be enough to do it, so the original plans are barely impacted.

Insiders will be the first to get Windows 10 on July 29, so if you're already participating in the program, expect to get the final bits of the new operating system on the same day. Windows 7 and 8.1 upgraders will also get the new OS soon after launch, but this time it will arrive in waves, depending on the number of compatibility issues that might be detected on your computers.

Microsoft says that even if such issues are found on your computer, you can still get Windows 10 and be provided with a number of options, including installing the OS and then contacting app developers or hardware makers for assistance.
