It's Windows 10 Wednesday at TR. Today, we learned that Microsoft will be releasing the new OS some time this summer, and that the company is planning to accept Windows pirates back into the officially licensed fold. Also, Windows 10's Hello authentication features will allow you to use biometrics for a password. Now, there's a piping-hot build of the upcoming OS for members of the Windows Insider program. Ars Technica has the details:
Build 10041 should be available right now to preview users on the fast update track. The new features are broadly those we saw in leaks earlier this month: a prettier Start menu, some changes to virtual desktops, and a better (though still incomplete) interface for picking Wi-Fi networks. Strikingly, the new Project Spartan browser isn't in this build.
To get the new build, you'll need to be on the fast update track for the Win10 preview. Head to the Windows Insider page if you want to try the new OS.
