Windows Threshold: Partners get access to the builds
Later this month, Microsoft is expected to release a public build of Windows Threshold for use by developers and enthusiasts alike. But, if you are a top tier Microsoft partner, there is a good chance that you already have access to these builds.
It was tipped to Neowin a few weeks back that partners were starting to get more recent builds of Threshold and we have been able to confirm that this is true. But, if you are thinking that this will mean a leak soon, don't get too excited as there are many security features in place to discourage these groups from letting anyone see the contents. On top of this, not all features are enabled in these builds.

Windows 9 Preview Now Available for Microsoft Partners
Consumers are expected to be allowed to test-drive the new Windows 9 Preview later this month, but according to a new report, Microsoft’s partners have already received an early build of the operating system and are running it as we speak.
The information comes via Neowin, who also writes that some OEMs actually got the preview version of Windows 9 a few weeks ago, but the majority are only now getting their hands on what’s said to be the very first glimpse of Microsoft’s new operating system.
Unfortunately for people who expected to see a leak happening when partners received the testing build, this is very unlikely due to the new security measures implemented in these new ISOs, as Microsoft wants to make sure that nobody publishes early versions of the software to the web before the public launch later this month.

Builds 10158 & 10159 can't access many network shares I have a number of network shares that Win 10 no longer has permission to access. This only occurred in builds 10158 & 10159. The weird thing is that all the shares that can't be accessed are on a single machine, however, there are shares on that...
