    Microsoft starts internal development of Windows 10 ‘Redstone’


    A few months ago, details regarding a number of upcoming ‘feature’ updates for Windows 10 were detailed, the first of which is codenamed Threshold 2 and scheduled to arrive in just a few weeks. Threshold 2 will include a number of small features and tweaks which were originally slated for the Windows 10 RTM, but due to time-constraints never made it, features such as a Messaging app, Edge extensions and other under-the-hood improvements.

    The second update coming for Windows 10 is codenamed Redstone, and is a larger update compared to Threshold 2. Redstone will be what Windows 8.1 was to Windows 8 essentially, bringing much needed changes and improvements to the feature-set and design of Windows 10. Redstone is scheduled to launch around a year after Windows 10 did, and is pretty much ‘next’ version of Windows...

    So Redstone should be around July next year then.

    Let us hope "Redstone" doesn't turn out to be a Red-herring, and brings features more attuned with Windows 7 and 8.

    Interestingly enough, I just installed El Capitan, the latest OSX version on my vmplayer. Never have used OSX, so I just wanted to compare it to Window 10 . Though I am certainly far, far more familiar with Windows, I was surprised to see how much the 2 operating system were alike (Windows 10) not earlier versions of Windows. Now I am not speaking interface wise, menus, etc. but just functionality. It reminds me of a Linux/Windows combined OS. Very interesting, I can understand how Appleheads may prefer it. With their iWorks (Office software), and vast Apps store, it really can compete head to head with Windows, IMHO.

    They haven't released an official PC version, but if they ever do, I would say watch Microsoft. I believe it is the only reason, a lot of people have not converted to OSX, is they have too many PCs in their household to switch over. Also, as it has been forever with Apple, and new versions are always free, if you have an older version.

    Will updates such as Redstone still be free? Or is new M$ "service" charging us for "big" updates once a year or so?

    I think you're getting your operating systems mixed up, there is no vast Mac App Store, that's IOS, there are probably less in the Mac App Store than the Windows App Store.
    Very few people use iWorks, most use Microsoft Office, unless you count young kids on their first Mac, I belong to a Mac forum, most use Bootcamp to install Windows 8 and now 10.

    I'm hoping they get ReFS into the client UI this time.

    Just hope Windows don't get too close to El Capitan because of:

    The article says Threshold 2 is just a few weeks away and that it will bring extension support to Edge. But shouldn't they have made extensions available for Insiders by now if this was true?
