A new Windows 10 release has been pushed out for those signed up on the Fast ring of the new OS, Build 10122.

The previous build, which I have been trialling for the past week, was Build 10074.

Early previews of Windows 10 are only recommended for very technical people that wish to play with pre-release software and are aware of the risks. It is not recommended that you install it onto your primary working machine.

Furthermore, in this release there is a known issue with machines that have an AMD GPU. If you attempt to run Microsoft Edge (the company's new browser, to replace Internet Explorer, which is temporarily codenamed "Project Spartan"), you will encounter frequent crashes.

As we are rapidly releasing the expected June-July release date for Windows on PCs, the pre-release builds are beginning to look more polished and stable. The team at Microsoft is working hard to resolve issues that people have had with the early software, and are no longer focusing on new features.

If you are interested in installing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10122 onto your machine, and would like a step-by-step walkthrough, I hope to post one shortly.

Alternatively, wait until the final release and — if you are running Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 — you will receive a free upgrade to Windows 10 via Windows Update!
