"Windows Insiders have been the first to see our work on Windows 10 at every stage. Now you will also be the first to get a build flighted to you using the channels that we'll use for targeting and deploying to PCs for our staged rollout," said Gabe Aul, head of the Windows 10 Insider program in a July 13 update to a previous blog post.
More from Aul:
"We're suspending the availability of Windows 10 builds briefly while we prepare for that (rollout), and the next build that we flight to you will be delivered using the production channels. Starting tomorrow (July 14), we will also not be delivering any additional ISOs at this point as we really need Insiders to be using, stressing, and validating our distribution and upgrade processes. We'll make ISOs available again in the future, but for now we ask you to upgrade your current build via Windows Update once the next build is released."
July 29 is the date when Microsoft will start rolling out Windows 10 to its Windows Insiders in the form of a new build flight. Others who have "reserved" their copies of Windows 10 as part of Microsoft's first-year-free upgrade promotion will get the RTM bits over the following few weeks.
Microsoft will continue its Windows 10 Insider program after the product RTMs. The Windows team will continue to offer Insiders preview builds and to offer those with the final RTM bits regular, ongoing feature and security updates via Windows Update.
One day, in the Shiproom, (Microsoft Distinguished Engineer) Mike Fortin came in with red shorts and a red T-shirt, Box tweeted. "From then on, when anyone brings in an embarrassing bug (or -- gasp -- a regression), they must wear red.
(And for those wondering, the new red shirt has nothing to do with the red shirts worn regularly by Microsoft Cloud & Enterprise Chief Scott Guthrie, Box was quick to note.)
