Windows 10 Update codename ‘Redstone’ to be released in two waves in 2016


Windows 10 RTM will be getting an update next year, which is likely to come just a few months, or under a year before it has actually been on the market. Microsoft plans to release Windows 10 this fall or late this summer, and give users the opportunity to experience the new platform before they update it. It isn’t anything new or unheard of for Microsoft, who frequently updates their operating systems with a Service Pack a year, or a little less after it initially launches. In many ways, Redstone will really just be an update like Windows 8.1 rather than a hardcore Service Pack update that will tote a lot of technical updates.

One thing it will do though is pack in features that weren’t previously seen, and will give users the ability to have bugs that they’ve felt – fixed with that update. The post-RTM update will be in honor of Minecraft and will launch twice throughout the year. First, it will launch at the beginning of the year, and then later in the year for a second time. Each time, ideally, the company will be introducing more technology, more improvements, and as a whole – a better product to their users.

It isn’t expected to be something that changes the way people receive Windows 10 though. Instead, Microsoft is expected to launch this in a very simple way and make sure that the product is just improved. This won’t be a new OS or a change to how people interact with the operating system in a major way at home. This will just fix some of the outstanding issues that are left.


Fixing prior issues is something that Microsoft has been focused on doing with this operating system. Windows 10 is mean to avoid the issues that were experienced with Windows 8, and is intended to bring back some of those users who they lost in the past with the bad release of Windows 8. This is all about delivering the best experience to Windows users and getting some of their core enterprise users back. The only way Microsoft is going to do that by continually updating the OS that can handle the enterprise load.
