Windows 10 Preview Won't Ship to Standard Users
Microsoft yesterday released a brand new tool that allows Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 computers to install Windows 10 Technical Preview automatically via Windows Update, thus making everything faster and easier for those who want to see what's new in the next OS version.
Some users, however, thought that the next Windows 10 preview build would actually be shipped to standard users as well, which kind of makes things worse, especially since these testing tidbits are usually unstable and come with bugs that affect productivity.
Gabriel Aul, head of the Windows Insider group, explained in a series of tweets that the next Windows 10 Technical Preview build would only be shipped to Windows Insiders, so standard/ordinary users would stay on their existing OS version without any update available for their PCs.
Basically, if you are running Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 and you deploy the aforementioned tool, you need to be a Windows Insider in order to get the next Windows 10 build. The new release will show up in Windows Update and will install just like it does on existing Technical Preview builds.
