Windows 10

Windows 10 launches this Wednesday, and for the last few weeks Microsoft has been working hard on getting last minute bugs fixed before general availability. Now, the final ‘day one’ patch for Windows 10 looks to have been finalized, and includes over 1GB of improvements to the underlying operating system.

The final build number consumers will update to on July 29th reads 10240.16405.150725-1815.th1, and those keeping track will notice the delta number has increased from 16384. Those upgrading will actually download 10240.16384 alongside the day one patch handsomely titled KB3074683, and will be applied automatically during the upgrade so by the time the consumer lands on the desktop, they’ll be running 10240.16405.

The day one patch is less than 500MB, but expands to over 1GB of improvements when applied to the system. The day one update fixes bugs, and improves underlying system code for consumers, hopefully making the upgrade experience smooth and general operating system performance better.

A day one update that includes over 1GB of improvements is definitely good news, as it means Microsoft has worked their backsides off in getting last minute bugs squashed as well as preparing operating system for general use. Windows 10 launches as a free upgrade for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users on July 29th. Are you excited for Windows 10?
