    Windows 10 Threshold 2 rumored to launch in November


    For those who don’t know, Microsoft is currently working on it’s first non-patch update for Windows 10, currently codenamed Threshold 2 and was originally supposed to launch sometime in October. But as of recently, it appears that release window may have slipped ever so slightly, as according to my sources, Threshold 2 will now launch in early November instead.

    This is likely for the best, as it gives Microsoft a little more time to continue developing Threshold 2 and should hopefully result in a better built all round update for consumers when it is finally released. Now another interesting thing to think about is what the update could possibly be called when it does eventually launch.

    Although there have not been any branding decisions made regarding the update, I understand Microsoft is now referring to Threshold 2 as “Windows 10 Update for November” or “Windows 10 November Update” internally and with close partners, whether one of those names ends up as being final remains to be seen, but November is definitely looking more likely now. Microsoft could very well opt to not give this update any name or identity, and simply release it as another standard Windows 10 update for consumers. We’ll see...

    I just read this about 30 minutes ago. Maybe MS is going to fix some known bugs.

    Yes. Like SD card readers not working properly in many a laptop - including mine!

    Really hope they eventually add the ability to create a horizontal divider in the Start Menu to separate groups of tiles. Would also like to be able to create custom full-size tiles the same way OblyTile allowed in Windows 8.1.

    I'd be happy if they would just "fix" their Upgrade tool so it really checks the details of Win7 machines so that, when I try an Upgrade after that, it either (1) works, or (2) tells me in advance that it's not going to work. I've got four Win7 machine's I'd like to Upgrade but it failed on one and trashed the other so bad I had to reimage it from HP Recovery media to get it working again. Holding off on the other two and redoing the first two until after the new install media becomes available.

    They aren't great names - what if Microsoft want to issue another update in November next year? Or the year after?

    To Microsoft - just number it as Service Pack x and be done with it!

    Hopefully by this release I can tell family and friends it's "ok" to upgrade.

    I think all the builds in the current range are Th. I wonder if our next come-even point when it is possible to easily transition from Insider back to mainstream (i.e., without reinstalling 10240 and updating again) will be November. I hope the milestones work that way. Some insiders are skating on the edge using Insider builds on thier primary computers and really should go mainstream.

    what kind of laptop do you use (list make & model)?

    The card reader slot in my dad's Toshiba C55Dt-A touchscreen laptop works okay with Win10 since it uses Realtek card reader drivers and Realtek is very reliable with driver support.
