With the launch of Windows 10 set for July 29, Microsoft is hard at work for its next desktop operating system to hit the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) stage, and according to The Verge, that will happen this week.
The RTM process has always been quite the milestone for Microsoft to reach with each successive OS, but with Windows 10, it's not such a big achievement. This is because the company has adopted a "Windows as a service" model, very similar to its competitors. Microsoft will consider Windows 10 the "final version of Windows" which kind of marks an end to an era for Microsoft in one way, but opens many doors - or windows - in another.
There were three different versions of Windows 10 builds released to testers last week, showing that the company is pushing out massive progress with the OS, with each update containing just minor updates and improvements. There are sure to be a few more updates before the company reaches RTM, but it doesn't look like it will be long now.
Are you ready for the plunge on July 29 for Windows 10? Will you be upgrading?
