    That or a USB flash drive. With that you can just load the latest major build. You really don't need to keep the older major builds.

    I am afraid that a USB drive is less reliable than a DVD although the former is more expensive than the latter.

    I've had some good luck with them in the past but I tend to get a pack of DVD's so I can make copies of the insider ISO's as well as the major builds for backup purposes.

    Historically, just the opposite has been true for me over the years.

    I mean DVD-R instead of DVD-RW.

    Could it be less reliable than a USB drive?

    Interesting,
    If you take good care no.
    If exposed regularly to light - IR - UV... sunlight then yes.
    I've seen them turn yellow and become unreadable little by little. Or for some DVD the inner /dye coating got tiny holes over time.
    Overall the plastic will also tend to break more easily instead of bending if exposed to sunlight. But they are way better than CD's I give you that.
    If you would use one USB drive for the exact same purpose as you use the DVD for, will the USB be less reliable than a DVD drive?

    DVDs will never be as reliable as a thumb drive. I wouldn't be surprised if within a couple of years DVDs will be just like floppy disk. It's already hard to find decent blank DVDs in stores.

Could build 14346 be the Anniversary Update RTM?
Was looking at BuildFeed, this is the last build listed there: 10.0.14346.1000.rs1_release.160512-1748 Since it looks like RS1 is pretty much feature complete, could this build be the final release?
