Ever since the first Windows 10 feature upgrade — the so called November Update back in 2015 — made its appearance, there has been a new biannual online game “Guess the General Availability release build“. As soon as the Windows Insider team releases the first preview build for the next feature upgrade without a watermark
As you might already be aware, some very clever Windows users and tinkerers have managed to run a full Windows 10 ARM64 desktop operating system on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B/B+ with the help of some modified binaries. Yes, I am talking about the full-fledged 64-bit desktop operating system found preinstalled on many laptop
I do not have to tell you about the Windows 10 version 1809 release fiasco. It is well known and documented.
