Microsoft Issues Third Windows 10 Insider Preview Build This Week

Your PC uses a processor that isn't supported on this version of Windows and you won't receive updates. Windows Vista came with an updated graphical user interface and visual style (dubbed Aero), along with a new search option called Windows Search, as well as a host of other improvements, including redesigned networking, audio, print and display sub-systems, and new multimedia tools.

"When we begin the phased rollout of the developer kits this month, the kits will include the Acer headset, along with documentation and access to Windows 10 Insider preview builds and the software development kit (SDK) to enable developers to build mixed reality applications", said Alex Kipman, Technical Fellow, Microsoft.

The pace at which Microsoft has released bug-focused builds suggests that the Windows 10 Creators Update might arrive sooner than later.

This issue occurs with newer hardware equipped with 7th-generation Intel processors ("Kaby Lake") and AMD Ryzen ("Bristol Ridge") chips. The company backed off slightly on that plan, releasing a list of Skylake-based systems that will be fully supported.

When some people were going through the Windows 10 out-of-box-experience (OOBE) to set up the operating system, tapping on the birthday field when making a new account sometimes caused a crash.

The Windows 10 Creators Update is almost here. The only difference is that they won't receive security updates, leaving workstations exposed to malware and exploits.

It must be noted that Microsoft already ended mainstream support for Windows 7 in 2015, and its extended support will expire in 2020. "In that case, we'll automatically download only those updates required to keep Windows running smoothly". It's a drastic approach for some, and it will most probably not sit well with Windows 7 or 8.1 holdouts. Microsoft has been releasing preview builds of the Creators Update since August a year ago.

Microsoft cannot know the local circumstances of each user, particularly when it comes to data cost, and despite the importance of updates this should be an area where the user remains in control.

But for many Vista users running a now stable operating system on a decent PC, their choice is not as clear cut.
