Microsoft is due to release Windows 10 RTM Build which will be officially available on 29th July, but the final build has been already leaked online and it is available for download. The Build 10240 is the official final Retail version which has no more watermarks of evaluation version or any build number unlike the Insider Previews. Windows 10 RTM Build 10240 will be available both in iso image and esd format, you’ll be able to burn the image in the pen drive or a DVD. The final build shows a lot of improvements and a lot smoother user interface, the performance is pretty impressive unlike the previous builds. There are lot more improvements required like the start menu glitches which still freezes to open after a prolonged period of time. But overall Microsoft’s Windows 10 Build 10240 is the best version we can bet upon, it is decent, the GUI is attractive, the booting time, shutting down time and every other minor things have just made us fall in love.
There will be more patches to the bugs and errors in this build, lets wait to see till July 29th, but as of now we have started receiving the updates already.
Is it really Windows 10 RTM ?
As the sources mentioned, that the Build 10240 is the final build for RTM copy. Microsoft will be rolling out Build 10240 for the first Windows 10 Testers and they are on a verge to fix and patch the bugs and errors forming in this build. Source – TheVerge

Windows 10 App Development
Developers working on Windows 10 will have the first opportunity to upload Universal Windows Applications to the Windows Dev Center using production quality Windows 10 tools on July 29th. We appreciate all the time you’ve spent using flights of the tools and providing feedback and we are excited for you to begin sharing your applications with everyone running Windows 10. For more information on developing Universal Windows Apps, see the Building Apps For Windows blog.
Office on Windows 10
Thanks to all of you who have been using the new Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint mobile apps on Windows 10. There are a few changes to the apps coming up that are part of helping them get ready for their release with Windows 10. You may have already noticed that on PCs and tablets we’ve added “Mobile” to the app names (to help distinguish them from the Office desktop suite), while on phones we simply call the apps Word, Excel and PowerPoint. We will also remove “Preview” from the app names and in about one week, you will need an Office 365 subscription to edit on Windows 10 PCs and larger tablets.
Similar to what we announced in March, viewing and most editing will remain free for non-commercial use on devices of 10.1” or less. Otherwise, you will need a qualifying Office 365 subscription. If you don’t have an Office 365 subscription, you can sign up for a free trial at www.office.com/try. You can also always edit your documents for free in Office Online at www.office.com. The full featured OneNote Universal App will come installed with Windows 10 and similar to OneNote on all other devices, editing is free.
