Welcome to Episode 263 of Observed Tech.

I am excited to unveil the new Observed Tech PODCAST Logo with this episode. The anchor element of the logo, which you will see across all properties that publish the show, includes an awesome hand drawn headshot by fellow Microsoft MVP @reverentgeek.

The background is of course my favorite color of blue, #004A7F, the same I use here on WindowsObserver.com.

After fawning over the new logo, I jump in and talk about the latest on Windows 10 Redstone 4 and Redstone 5 development builds. We unexpectedly got a new build this past week that quickly made its way from Fast Ring into Slow after four days. Less than an hour later it was already in Release Preview ring for testers. Can you say release fever?

Anyway, I then spend some time talking about the whole Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build 17133 process and why the community needs to stop focusing on RTM builds. In reality there is no such build anymore when it comes to Windows. Build 17133 was simply a Release Preview and that information came directly from the testing ring it was released to – no guessing required.

Anyway – we need a new approach so I make my case for that for a pretty good chunk of the show. My show – my soapbox!

Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end and not miss anything.

As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
