Microsoft closed out this past week with the release of two new Windows 10 testing build to its cadre of Windows Insiders. Both Fast and Skip Ahead Rings each received updated builds for 19H1 and 20H1 respectively.
It is Super Bowl Sunday here in the U.S. and I have a Super edition of Observed Tech for you because there was a lot of news this past week across a broad range of subjects. Windows Insiders received a new Fast Ring build for Windows 10 (19H1) and with the opening of the Skip Ahead ring testers got to opt into the prerelease branch to get the first development build of Windows 10 (19H2). I explain how things will work moving forward with a Fast and Skip Ahead Ring now receiving builds. Of course we also have information about financial results for the latest quarter from Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon and all continue to make progress in their own unique approaches. As always scattered throughout the show is news about apps, services, gaming, and security so stay tuned from start to finish to catch everything.
The last few weeks have been very busy in the Windows as a Service (WaaS) world. Now that the Windows 10 April 2018 Update is available for download, it is time to move forward with the testing of Redstone 5 (RS5). Over the last few months Windows 10 RS5 has been in limited testing as part of the Windows Insiders Skip Ahead ring.
