Microsoft begins to slowly update the install experience with Windows 10

Last week Microsoft pushed out the last Windows 10 build for the year that bumps the build number up to 9879. For those of you who have not installed the build - and we don't blame you if you haven't, as these builds are not for production use - the installer has changed slightly.

As you can see in the screenshot above, the background is now white, whereas it used to be purple and in later screens (below), you can see the older color boxed in to the gray background. These are some of the first changes that Microsoft is making to the install experience and we fully expect more updates as we get closer to the release of Windows 10.

These are small changes but show that Microsoft is likely changing every aspect of this OS before it ships.

We have been covering all of the new features that shipped with the latest build of Windows 10, 9879. If you happen to find something that we have not covered yet, make sure to send us a tip. Or, if you are having issues with your install, you can get help in our forums here.
