While this build doesn't have any new features or changes, Windows 10 Insiders have plenty to try out this week. Linux GUI app support is a highly anticipated feature. The new "Eco mode" seems like an intriguing way to reduce power consumption and to improve efficiency.
Since build 21364 rolled out, Microsoft also added the option to turn off Aero Shake through settings. Here's the description of the option from the Windows blog post:
- You can now turn off Aero Shake via Settings > System > Multitasking and choosing the "off" toggle under "Title bar window shake". This setting is now off by default so for those who want it back will need to turn this setting on.
Beta and Release Preview Insiders recently received the "news and interests" widget, which is also being backported to older versions of Windows 10.
