Welcome to Episode 224 of Observed.Tech.
After being away last week on personal retreat I am back behind the microphone for this week’s episode that is just chock full of Windows 10 news. Since we hit the early unofficial launch of the Creators Update just a few days ago we get caught up on the final stages of Redstone 2 and getting everyone started on upgrading to this third major feature update for Windows 10 now that it is available.
However, I lead off the show with some personal news that many of you may have already heard about on social media but I wanted to make it official on the show as well.
I then very quickly jump into details about the Creators Update, which will begin its official rollout via Windows Update on 11 April which is this month’s Patch Tuesday, and get you ready to understand all the new features and enhancements.
We also got a big surprise Friday afternoon from the Windows Insider Program team that was truly unexpected and gets Insiders right back into pre-release builds. Yes, that is correct, Microsoft has already pushed out the first Redstone 3 build to Insiders. This now begins the development journey towards the four major feature update for Windows 10 which is expected this fall. Plus there are already some surprises in this first build even though no new features were officially announced for Redstone 3 Build 16170.
There is also news for Xbox One and its Creators Update process plus some serious details about Project Scorpio – the next version of Microsoft’s Xbox gaming console.
As always I have a few interesting tidbits at the end of the show including firmware and driver updates for Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 running the Creators Update, 80% of Windows 10 PC’s already running Anniversary Update, the ROI for migrations to Windows 10 in businesses, unboxing and trying out new hardware, extended introductory pricing for Outlook.com Premium, and Windows Vista reaching then end of its lifecycle support this month.
Enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
