Microsoft has pushed out a new preview build for Windows 10, which marks the transition of the Fall Creators Update to being set in stone, ahead of its rollout in two weeks. Dona Sarkar made the announcement of this release on Twitter late Monday night. Today, the company released Windows 10 build 16299.15, also to the Fast ring, despite the fact that 16299 has since been offered to the Slow ring.

Microsoft doesn't like to use terms like Release Candidate (RC) or Release to Manufacturing (RTM) anymore. If there is another Cumulative Update released then that will start the process over again although Microsoft could choose to just release a Cumulative Update on 17 October when the update becomes globally available as a Day One patch.

It would seem though, that this is going to be the RTM build for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update on PCs (Mobile is on feature2, and the RTM will likely be build 15252). If you are on the Slow ring, you should be able to receive the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM build in the next couple of days.


If you're a Windows Insider, what do you think of the Fall Creators Update?

After you install this cumulative update, hit Windows Key and type: winver and hit Enter. Also, note that there is no longer an "Evaluation Copy" watermark in the lower-right corner of the desktop.

The Windows 10 Fall Creators Update RTM build 16299.15 brings more bugs and fixes to the operating system, but the company hasn't shared any chaneglog to go with it.
