On Wednesday, Microsoft released a new preview of Windows 10 (build 10061) to the fast lane with a lot of changes since build 10049. However, it's only a minor improvement of build 10056, which leaked outside of Redmond's headquarters several days ago.

Instead of listing what's new in Windows 10 build 10061 since build 10056, we're going to be looking for the new official changes since build 10049. That will give Windows Insiders a better picture of what's going on.

Creating a dual-boot system will let you safely test Windows 10 Technical Preview using the full power of your PC's hardware alongside Windows 8.1. In Windows 10, Microsoft is doing something differently as it's letting customers download and install versions of the operating system early on, so users get a sneak peek of what is to come. But also it helps Microsoft to get more feedbacks and design an operating system that people will actually like.

However, because the operating system remains an unfinished product, it has numbers of bugs, and there are many features that don't work. As such it's not recommended to use it as your primary operating system.

Microsoft's forthcoming Windows 10 OS brings many new changes in terms of architecture and design. One of those updates is in regards to MDL2 also known as Microsoft Design Language 2.0. This term refers to the change in controls, fonts, and iconography found in the desktop and mobile versions of Windows 10.

Martin Anderson, who's interested in general technology and Microsoft's platforms, has cobbled together a neat image graphic (original size). It compares and contrasts the design language found in Windows and Windows Phone 8.1 to the new framework found in Windows 10 for mobile and desktop.

The template explicitly compares controls e.g. switches, toggles, pickers, dialog windows and gives a visual overview of how the design language has evolved.
