    Microsoft is currently working on readying the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, one of the most important releases for its new operating system that will include a long list of improvements, among which new features that are supposed to help the company bring more people on its platforms.

    And itís precisely these features what Microsoft is using right now to make sure that Windows 10 will become a more appealing operating system, as the company is currently working with partners in order to help them discover the benefits of the latest improvements. And build devices specifically tailored for them, that is.

    At the WinHEC conference, Microsoft has emphasized that Windows Ink is becoming an essential feature of the operating system and has pointed out that itís critical for device makers to build products that can support it.

    Windows Ink is Microsoftís effort to make the operating system more appropriate for use with a pen, and the company wants to standardize the stylus with the Redstone update. Device makers will be allowed to build their own pens that can work across all devices in an attempt to make this input method more widely adopted in the operating system

    Thanks for sharing.. I wonder how many new features that MS are not sharing with the insiders? Could it be that we'll all get a surprise or two when the anniversary update comes??

    Huh? I have Windows Ink on my taskbar in 14342. What do you mean by "not sharing with insiders"?

    I'm wondering if there is a chance that some new features might not be being shared at the moment and they're being saved for the last builds before the anniversary.

    And I didn't mention Ink.. what are you referring to??

    That worries me a bit BunnyJ. Could be nice surprises or complete OH NO! surprises.
    I agree with you though there is probably a lot of stuff that will take us by surprise

    Would Microsoft release the redstone build to a non insider early? Per my other post, I am halfway sure that Microsoft is trying to install a build and as I said I am not an insider. I am wondering if someone at Microsoft hit the wrong button.


    Disregard, problem fixed

    First off what other post are you referencing?? And no.,. MS is not going to drop the anniversary build or any insider builds that lead up to it to non insiders.
