    What? Gabe's got more excuses and apologies?

    You can hardly blame them for not releasing a build today. It is Friday the 13th.................

    Perhaps a point of view?

    From my perspective, he doesn't need to apologise or make excuses for a little perq for the guys to play with.

    Might be a good idea if you read the blog before making a comment.

    Like everyone else here, once a new build drops, I, you and everyone else here will be all over it like a "chicken on a june bug"!
    My issue with this process is that there is no schedule for the build drops. That would be not only be a nice thing but I would think that MS would have a good idea of the time table and they could share more information rather than just leaving people in the dark.

    At this stage I really like Win10 and I will upgrade when it comes out later this year.. but for now I have no reason to continue testing the TP's. The only new thing I was looking foward to is Spartan and that's just a browser that I can play with when the final release does come out.

    I already have that's why I made the comment:

    The short answer on this is really that we’ve probably been too conservative about pushing builds to the Fast ring for Windows Insiders.
    Sounds like an apology to me.

    • If we announce a date, we’ll want to have a very high confidence of hitting it. It’s frustrating for you to hear a date and be let down if we miss it, and it’s frustrating and distracting for us too. Not only that, but it slows down our engineering since many of the same people who are scrambling after a missed date would otherwise have been making more forward progress on the product.
    • Because we’d want that very high confidence we’d pick a date that was further out than if we were living on the edge. We’d give ourselves some time to deal with bugs and re-spin builds if we needed to.
    • If we have a great build in hand, as often happens, leading up to the date we would hold on that build rather than ship it. We call this putting the build in ‘escrow’. Why not just ship it early? Well, some people get upset about the surprise, but also it sets expectations that sometimes we really mean a date and sometimes we don’t. We want people to know that when we say a date they can count on that date.
    • In the worst case, if we’re chasing down a tough bug and run out of time, we may miss the date. This is of course way worse than being early. We’d have let down people who were counting on us to deliver on the date we said we would.


    Sounds like excuses to me.
    If they want to do it right instead of waiting for a complete build, as soon as something is ready for testing or a fix is made they should update the current OS, and builds should be only for when fresh downloading from Microsoft like for new comers or others on the "Late show".
