    Is it definitely confirmed, 100% for sure, that the latest build floating around, 10240 is indeed the RTM version?

    Namely that a couple of months from now, if one was to buy Windows 10, it would be absolutely identical to this build 10240?

    Thank you!!!

    :worthy:

    Quick answer:
    1. On Jul 29, rush to a store.
    2. Buy a machine that says defintely it is isntalled with Windows 10, probably a Dell, HP,or Lenovo
    3. Go home and switch on, but don't connect to web.
    4. Check if it's 10240.16384, or something else, then you are 100% sure.
    5. Don't forget to report to us, tks in advance!

    What's with the .16384? So now we have build numbers with decimal points? :confused:

    Nobody knows for sure, and we probably won't know until July 29th.

    There's a good indicator that it is. Take it with a grain of salt.

    Likely it is a RTM build but will receive a nice big GA patch on the 29th to roll you up to the latest bits - same thing occurred with Windows 8 I believe.

    I have to facepalm everytime i see people say "guess we'll have to wait til the 29th to see if it's truly RTM".

    No you don't. RTM means release to manufacturing - which is exactly what they did with 10240.16384.

    Is it the version we're gonna get on release date ? Maybe not. But is it RTM ? Of course it is!

    10240.16384 may be RTM but it definitely won't be the version released on the 29th. With over a week to go the version is already 10240.16390 and growing.
    By the way Microsoft is already working on 10245

    Sorry, but that's not a satisfying answer to the original question: "Is it definitely confirmed, 100% for sure, that the latest build floating around, 10240 is indeed the RTM version?" Quick answer: No. Why? It hasn't been confirmed, nothing has been officially announced, it's likely to be RTM, but we cannot be 100% sure.

    Time will tellâ„¢.
