    Windows 10 Redstone: Continuum to be big focal point


    Posted: 30 Oct 2015
    Windows 10 “Threshold 2” is almost ready. With final tests hopefully beginning next week (I’m told it won’t be launching November 2nd now, more on that here), Microsoft has begun focusing on its next planned update for Windows 10, codenamed Redstone and coming in the summer of 2016. Redstone is set to be a much larger update compared to Threshold 2, incorporating a number of new features and user-experiences which will enhance Windows 10.

    Redstone for the most part is still being drawn up internally, which explains why so few details regarding the update have leaked. There are however a few plans already on the table, features such as extensions for Microsoft Edge are expected to arrive with Redstone after being postponed in Threshold 2. Now, I’ve started hearing plans regarding Continuum in Redstone, and how Microsoft is planning to beef it up with new OS X Continuity-like features that connect your PC to your Windows 10 Mobile device like never before.

    Microsoft is essentially planning to introduce the ability to roam apps across your Windows 10 PC and Windows 10 Mobile device. What I mean by this is simple, imagine working on an email on your phone in the Mail app, but you decide you want to continue working on your email on your desktop. Simply open the mail app on your desktop, and Windows will pick up exactly where you left off. Another example is with web browsing with Microsoft Edge on your desktop, opening the app on your phone will bring you to where you left off on your desktop. Pretty neat...

    Sounds very interesting Brink, would have been nice if MS had NOT tried to rush the TH2 but, that's MS. :)

    The Redstone update may be a good thing which hopefully, MS makes work properly from the time of it's intro.

    With Redstone MS is definitely bringing it all together. With so much to do and so little time I would be surprised if it's ready by summer 2016. We can hope though! :)

    Well if they delay it I would not complain as long as it worked ok and got all the bugs out.
    Touch wood my upgrade went in no hassle except for one driver and one app for photo

    On my TP drive I had the no boot error and had to disable secure boot. All fixed now. I'm using the latest versions of Win 10 RTM, Windows 10 TP and Win Phone 10 and all is running fine. I hope MS doesn't release Redstone until it's ready and not worry about meeting a deadline. :)
