    Windows 10 build 9879 going out to 'slow ring' participant


    It was only a week ago that Microsoft delivered a new Windows 10 build (9879). While a those in the slow ring did not have access to that update, it looks like the new build could makes its way to that ring shortly. According to Gabriel Aul, Microsoft is almost ready to push out the new build (9879) to 'slow ring' participants. The new update to Windows 10 has a vast amount of improvements over the previous build and has been explored in great detail on Neowin over the past week.

    They should be warned about how buggy it is, so they can avoid it...

    New icons, being able to hide the search and task view buttons, a buggier version of IE, and a crippled OneDrive does not count as "a vast amount of improvements" in my book. Supposedly they are working on a "hotfix" for all the issues people have been having, but I doubt it could fix most of the issues in this build.

    The only thing that W10 brings to the table for me is windowed APP's that I do not use.

    I was referring specifically to build 9879 vs 9860. The four things I listed pretty much some up the "improvements" between the two builds. The Neowin refers to those changes as "a vast amount," which I think is hyperbole to an extreme.

    Unless MS fixes the bugs in 9879 they shouldn't release it to the slow ring. Each release has more bugs than the last. Adding more features is nice but fixing bugs is just as important if not more. I thought the whole idea of a slow release was to introduce more features with less bugs.

    Nothing quite like running a "preview," emphatically beta OS but then expecting it to be bug free, is there?...

    Well put. Given the point in the life cycle of this "preview" I have to say it's doing rather well.
    I've stayed away from third party tools: AV's, firewalls, and tools like classic shell and guess what?? I've had minimal issues. Sooner or later those items will work fine with Win10 but for now I'm simply testing out what MS provides with the preview and programs that I run on a daily basis. Stuff like Python, PyScripter and Java development tools(Eclipse). And they work for me.

    Yes, it still has a hick-up from time to time but I expect that and when it happens I report what occurred to MS.

    I'm surprised it's running as well as it is, too... Only things that bug me are things like the "CPU-Z won't run until I rename the executable" conundrum...! It's a little utility I run every now and then to amuse myself...nothing to it--id's your cpu, ram buses, etc. That's it--a pure read-only kind of application. Ran great under 8.1 and all previous iterations of Windows. Author updates the program regularly. Free ware. Win10 (all builds so far) refuses to install it because of "compatibility" reasons--but soon as I rename the install exe all is well--program installs and runs like it always has. Why would Microsoft not want me to run a read-only hardware config program? Love to be the fly on the wall there...
