    Same date for Build 10049. So, we're good to go, I guess.

    The only problem with having Build 10056 is that the next drop may refuse to install.

    For me all I'll do is re-install build 10049 and then get the download, create an ISO and do a clean install. With the TP thing I'm just installing the bare minimum .. and things I need to code Python.

    I have over half of my programs from Win 8 installed in the official build release of Win 10. That's why I won't upgrade build 10049 to 10056. I normally only do clean installs if I have to. I had build 10056 installed on one of my laptops last night just long enough to try it. I now have build 10049 installed on it so my wife can get use to Win 10 before it's released. If I'm not busy tomorrow I will install build 10056 in a VM and load a few programs so I can test it. It's something to do until a new build comes out.

    Another benefit of using VMs for testing.
    If it "dies", you don't need to panic.

    What? you mean I don't end up with a dead PC thats bricked permanently?

    The article mentions the builds get bricked which means irreversible damage hence a dead PC right? Oh wait, I think it was just my brain that got bricked by such a retarded article

    UEFI and protected disk + Bitlocker can really make problems if OS expires and will not boot. "Luckily" windows will start nagging in advance.
