    Microsoft Delays Some Windows 10 Redstone Features - Report-microsoft-delays-some-windows-10-redstone-features-report.jpg

    Redstone is the codename of the upcoming big update for Windows 10 and rumor has it that it could arrive in the summer with a number of exciting features, including support for extensions in Edge browser.

    But a new report coming from Petri and citing sources with knowledge of the matter reveals that some of these features might not be ready for Redstone, as Microsoft has decided to focus more on the internal build compiling system lately. As a result, there might not be enough time to get all features ready in time for the big launch.

    While we’re still far from the debut of Redstone, the report claims that Microsoft wanted to keep on its promise to release Windows 10 builds faster to insiders, to the company worked specifically on improving its internal systems for this.

    What's the point of getting Insider Builds more frequently if we won't be testing new Redstone features? I'd rather get more meaningful builds even if that means not getting them as fast.

    Basically, they are restructuring a lot of the 'engine'.

    I guess they do not want to bring out new features until it is fairly stable. It would be difficult to tell if it is the restructurng or new features causing issues otherwise?

    I'm wondering how many new features MS can add to 10 at this point. Adding extensions to Edge but what else??

    I can think of loads of possibilities eg

    totally independent virtual desktops (ie you can have one with icons for work, one with icons for home use etc)

    Ability to take remote control of several pcs at same time (webinars)

    Native chromecasting rather than just via chrome browser

    Improved hybrid image/file backup.

    Improved voice to text capability

    MS's own version of google cloudprint

    just to name a few ideas.

    There are still plenty of development possibilities.

    I would go by the basic fixes first rather then new features:
    • Remove get office and skype in case if already installed.
    • More control on Windows updates.
    • Onedrive Placeholders
    • Cortana Improvements like shutting down by a command.
