Report: Microsoft has completed Windows 10

UPDATE: Microsoft has now released Build 10240 to Windows Insiders, but is yet to confirm whether it is the RTM version of Windows 10.

Original report continues below…

Microsoft is ready to send Windows 10 to PC manufacturers, having completed work on the first release of the operating system, a report has claimed.

The Verge’s sources say Build 10240 will be the release to manufacturing (RTM) version, which hardware makers will soon be able to start loading onto a brand new crop of PCs.

The report says the build will be signed off by the big guns in the Windows division today, with a statement potentially forthcoming by the end of the week.

The RTM release generally means Microsoft is happy that any significant, lingering bugs have been squished ahead of the release to consumers.

According to the sources, Microsoft is now focusing on the patches and fixes that will accompany the launch of the operating system later this month.

Microsoft will begin rolling out Windows 10 on July 29, with the loyal army of Windows Insiders getting first dibs on the update.

Microsoft will also bring Windows 10, complete with its array of Windows 10 apps, to handsets running Windows Phone 8.1 and of course, the Xbox One console.
