Windows 10 enters RTM stage
Thirteen days before its official launch Windows 10 has entered the final Release-To-Manufacturing (RTM) stage or so various online sources claim. There’s credibility in this story as around the world the new OS will now have to be written on DVD disks and USB flash drives that will then sit in a store near you.
The final build carries the Windows 10 RTM build 10240 designation and will now be distributed to PC OEM partners, physical media manufacturers and to the GWX (Get Windows 10) team, which handles the free upgrade, which users of genuine Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 will get.
The Windows 10 RTM status, along with the fact that OEM manufacturers will get copies of the new OS, suggests that there might be PCs running the new OS on launch day. Previously, various online sources, including us, reported that the first computers with Windows 10 will be on the market this fall. Well, this might no longer be the case but the actual availability of Windows 10 on new PCs remains to be seen.
