Microsoft EMBIGGENS Windows 10 build list for Lumia mobes.

If you have a Nokia Lumia smartphone, your chances of running the Windows 10 Preview are looking up: According to Microsoft’s Gabe Aul, the company is set to open up Windows 10 Preview builds to a broader range of phones.

Microsoft has tentatively opened up its Windows 10 Technical Preview to more phones, after its initial list back in February had been extremely limited.The good news is that “partition stitching” is working well, meaning they will soon be able to proceed with the next wave of Windows 10 Mobile Technical Preview updates. The software giant’s Gabe Aul said in a blog post on Friday that its builds-for-mobes list was preliminary. “[A]s Windows Insiders I wanted to give you the visibility even though it’s not 100 per cent locked,” he said. The very bad news (for me at least) is that amongst the many, many handsets supported, the Lumia 930, the current Windows Phone flagship, is not included, even while the Lumia Icon is.

The reasons for this limited rollout were technical—Microsoft had to select phones with an OS partition large enough to handle Windows 10 until it had finished a partition-resizing feature known as Partition Stitching. A larger set of phones are now on the list, because – Aul explained – Microsoft has almost solved its so-called “partition stitching” function, which would apparently allow Redmond “to re-size the system partition dynamically” and thereby open up the build to more mobes. [W]e feel great here about the partition stitching code and current builds, but we likely still have at least one more week of engineering to do to ensure we get a great build for the expanded list of devices. Partition Stitching is now ready to rock, according to Microsoft, so the Windows development team was able to expand the preview to include support for additional Lumia devices.

Microsoft stresses that this is a “preliminary” list and is subject to change: The company may add or remove models from the compatibility list as it fixes bugs—or finds new ones. The 36 devices that are included in this master list that Microsoft produced doesn’t actually go into a huge amount of detail regarding what devices are left out. All of this is being done to make users forget about Windows 8, and even with as much promise as Windows 10 has with the Technical Previews that have been released, there are still a lot of questions – and bugs to be worked out.
