Windows Technical Preview

The windows technical preview build #10130 was built and was available since June last month.This build added some additional functionality to the photo app.However for those that are experienced Microsoft users they can check out build #10134 which is the latest build out.It has a new feature which is called "DELAY", which allows IT Administrators to delay downloads and installation of future preview build updates.This build also has another cool tool named, "Windows Snippet Tool".Note these builds are by far less stable than the more tested ones that are slowly released.For those that have installed Windows Technical Preview on top of their Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 before July 29 they will have to continue to receive Technical Previews from Microsoft even after the July 29 launch date.If they don`t microsoft will regard their copy of windows as not a genuine copy of windows.It`s not as though these users are missing anything, on the 29th of this month,  they will have Windows 10 just as everyone else with the additions of continuous downloads of Windows Technical Previews afterwards.So if you want to Opt out of these Windows Technical Preview updates, you will have to down grade back to your windws 7 or 8 and then do a clean install of Windows 10.
