Microsoft’s Surface RT tablets to get some Windows 10 functionality.

A new build of Windows 10 preview is available for download, Microsoft announced Friday morning. On January 21, Microsoft unveiled the Windows 10 platform worldwide and also announced that the new build would be available within a week, though not equipped with all features. Microsoft announced this week that they would not be updating Windows RT to Windows 10 – the company’s next installment of their operating system – and it is difficult to blame them. The build will download automatically for Windows Insiders overnight, or you can get it now by going to PC Settings > Update and recovery > Preview builds and clicking the Check Now button.

According to the blog by Windows, in order to gain access to the preview builds, you have to join the Windows Insider programme, which is free of cost. If you need to start from the very beginning—in other words, you’ve never installed Windows 10 at all—check out our tutorial on how to install Windows 10 from scratch. The blog added that they are pushing out the Build 9926 out widely, flighting simultaneously to both ‘Fast’ and ‘Slow’ rings as well as available on ISOs.

These Windows RT-based tablets were the ones that used ARM-based chips, and boasted increased battery life and significantly better performance on particularly thin devices. You can also obtain the ISO for a clean install or virtual machine download here. “Some of the new features that Joe demoed on Wednesday will be available for our Windows Insiders starting today with our newest build – 9926,” Aul wrote. “However, not everything you saw on Wednesday is included in this new build. As such, as per Thurrott, the apparent conclusion from Microsoft’s projected move is that “Windows RT is dead.” Windows RT OS was launched by Microsoft in 2012, together with the Windows 8 launch. There simply wasn’t much that was said positive about Windows 8, and Microsoft has proven – by skipping “Windows 9 entirely – to be difficult on the company.

However, Windows RT soon became irrelevant because it suffered from significant performance and incompatibility issues with non-bundled desktop apps. In a nutshell, here’s what you should expect in the new 9926 build: Cortana: Microsoft’s digital assistant has been ported over from Windows Phone, and makes an appearance in Windows 10.

Windows 10 will ensure that desktops, mobiles, laptops, tablets, 2-in-1 devices will all run the same Windows 10 OS, which will be optimised based on the platform. We think that Cortana should interact with your Windows Phone, sending reminders to your desktop and taking over as a general search interface, to boot.

Microsoft’s willingness to cut out certain applications, certain companies, simply due to the company’s desire to limit the clutter on the devices. If the company did have plans to update any of their devices entirely, or continue on with the product lineup, then they certainly would have updated that device – of all of the Microsoft devices they have out there running RT-based systems.
