Microsoft to release Many More Windows 10 Redstone builds starting in January

Windows 10 logoThe very first Windows 10 Redstone preview build is now available for download, but it doesnt bring any big changes, so Microsofts more focused on improving it with the next releases.

And according to the company itself, these next releases will arrive at a much faster pace than before, as the company is finally ready to speed up the rollout schedule and provide users with builds that are very similar to the ones internally tested by the Windows team.

This isnt the first time when Microsoft is planning to provide users with builds faster, but this time the company has also offered a deadline, so starting in January, insiders enrolled in the Fast ring should begin receiving more and more preview builds of Windows 10 Redstone.

And yet, this isnt necessarily a reason to celebrate because getting preview builds faster is a double-edged sword. You can indeed test new features and improvements faster than before, but at the same time, the possibility of coming across critical bugs is also bigger.

And Gabriel Aul, head of the Windows Insider program, also warns that those who dont want to see too many bugs should switch to the slow ring before January.

The new criteria will be much closer to our criteria for flighting to our internal rings, which means more builds will pass it and be released externally to the Fast ring. This also means however that the builds we release to the Fast ring may include more bugs and other issues that could be slightly more painful for some people to live with. Its a tradeoff as the thing that throttles the rate of builds is the promotion criteria, he said.

According to people with knowledge of Microsofts plans, Windows 10 Redstone should be ready in the summer of 2016, so insiders getting preview builds will be very busy starting early next year. But it remains to be seen how fast Microsoft actually plans to update preview builds anyway.
