One of the biggest changes that came with Windows 10 is the new model of support and upgrades with which the Microsoft operating system became a kind of continuous development system, also known as “Rolling Release”. With just over a year and a half, Microsoft has already released three major updates for its operating system and, even though the latest update, Creators Update, is not even a month old, Microsoft is already talking about the next update of its operating system, which will be known as Windows 10 Redstone 3.
As we have said on many occasions, Microsoft is already working on the new Windows 10 Redstone 3 that already has the first compilations for users of the Insider program.
According to new plans by Microsoft, the company plans to launch two major annual updates for this operating system. So, while Windows 10 Creators Update was arrived in March (it’s version 1703), the next update will be Windows 10 Redstone 3 RTM (still has no definitive name) will be version 1709 of the operating system and it should arrive later in September.
At the moment very less is known about the specifications of this new version of the operating system. It is known that it will incorporate features such as the new battery management system and Project Neon, the new graphical interface of this operating system.
As we can see, the next update of Windows 10 is still very much on the air and much work remains ahead to start enjoying it, but we will see the RTM version of this new update in September, probably reaching all users in the first week of October 2017.
In addition to confirming the release of Windows 10 Redstone 3, Microsoft has also talked about support plans for its operating system and for its main application, MS Office. According to the company, both Windows 10 and Office will receive two major updates this year, the first in March, as we saw in Windows 10 Creators Update, and the second in September, as Redstone 3.
In addition, each new version, both Windows 10 and Office, will have support for 18 months. For example, in the case of Windows 10 Creators Update, the recent version will be supported until September 2018. Microsoft will also release Windows 10 Redstone 5, thus moving from the current 12 months of support to 18.
With this new development model, we will have Windows 10 for long, and it seems that the new operating system of Microsoft is gaining the confidence among its users.
