Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 259 #OTP

Welcome to episode 259 of Observed Tech. It has been a while – much too long – but travel and being sick just crippled any extracurricular activity for me over the last month since our last show however, as always we are back behind the microphone and ready to catch up with everyone. We begin that catching up process by talking about the current status of the Windows 10 Redstone 4 feature update, which by the way still does not have a marketing name, that is in its final days of development before it will be released next month by Microsoft. There are plenty of builds to talk about in all of the Windows Insiders rings plus what features have been added at this stage for testing. I also share how my bare metal testing has expanded in these last couple of weeks as the final testing builds become more and more stable. There has also been progress in the Redstone 5 Skip Ahead ring so we detail those new builds that are the basis for the sixth feature update for Windows 10 that is expected this fall. Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show including a couple of Windows Server releases, a couple of new apps, and insight on some of the first hands on reviews of Windows 10 on ARM 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!
