Microsoft's latest Windows 10 Insider build offers alt activation approach

Gregg Keizer | Oct. 13, 2015
Monday's build 10565 lets users activate OS with prior editions' product keys.

Microsoft will roll out an update/upgrade to the non-Insider crowd on Windows 10's "Current Branch" (CB) -- mostly used by consumers -- this year. Although it has said that CB updates will appear about once every four months, which would mean it would debut at the end of November, or four months after the July 29 launch -- that three-times-yearly cadence is flexible. If the company wanted to put the latest version of Windows 10 on devices aiming for the year-end sales season, it would probably release the update before the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S.

Build 10565 can be downloaded via Windows Update on Windows 10 devices that have been set to the Fast ring.
