The most remarkable change in this new build perhaps lies in its Windows Kernel number. The Windows Kernel version for Build 9888 is 10, which is a big upgrade over the Kernel version 6.4 of the last release Build 9879.
This is the full history of Windows Kernel upgrades,
– Vista kernel version is 6.0,
– Win7 is kernel version 6.1,
– Win8 kernel version 6.2,
– Win8.1 kernel version is 6.3
-Win10 Build 9841, 9860, 9879 kernel version 6.4,
-Win10 Build 9888 quietly upgrade kernel version 10.0!
So keeping the Windows Kernel upgrade history in mind, it is a very significant Kernel upgrade and it perhaps paves the way for Windows unification.
