    All these numbers are so confusing to me. How do the numbers work exactly? Sorry if this is obvious and the question is silly.. Is 20h2 the upcoming SP1 for 2004? So 19h2 is 2004 May update?

    The 'month' name hasn't been set yet as that gets chosen nearer the time it is ready for release, but it looks like it's going to be 'October' or 'November'. However the version has already been set, it is version 2009 in the current Insider preview of 20H1.

    ... 20H2 Build 19042.330 Version 2009 ...

    19H1 = 1st half of 2019.
    19H2 = 2nd half of 2019

    20H1 = 1st half of 2020
    20H2 = 2nd half of 2020
