How To Download Windows 10 Build 9879 Technical Preview ISO Image

The Windows 10 Technical Preview for Enterprise Build 9879 ISO has been released. Just a while back, Microsoft had released Build 9879 Technical Preview for users, and now the ISO images for Enterprise are available.

ISO images should help interested users do a complete clean install of the Technical Preview without having to jump through the upgrade hoops for getting their hands on it. It also reduces the chances of slightly eager, but novice users, from messing up their existing Windows installation.

This is also useful for Windows XP users who do not exactly qualify for acquiring the Windows 10 Technical Preview as an update, so these ISO images are the way to go.

Where 9879 is supposedly an improvement over the 9860 build. Microsoft has clearly outlined the bugs in its release notes. There is the occasional black screen logging in or when unlocking, some erratic behavior such as driver duplication leading to storage depletion, and music playback or Skype disconnecting when minimized.

The new build finally brings in the much celebrated trackpad gestures as well in the attempt to offer the same smooth navigational experience found in MacBooks.
