Windows 10 RTM Kernel Version Number: It’s not the 6.4 you’re expecting

Strictly still in rumor, but as of 11/24/14 Arstechnica is reporting that Windows 10 will feature a veritable true up for the bewildering Windows Versioning code we always have to look up. In a move that indicates the core change from 8.1 to 10, the new versioning code at release is anticipated to be 10.0

If that’s true, the Configuration Manager query for collections of Windows 10 systems will be:

    SELECT * FROM SMS_R_System WHERE OperatingSystemNameAndVersion LIKE ‘%Workstation 10.0’

For the Windows 10 Technical Preview, continue using the following:

    SELECT * FROM SMS_R_System WHERE OperatingSystemNameAndVersion LIKE ‘%Workstation 6.4’
