While Microsoft is putting the final polish on Windows 10 ahead of its release next week, it's time to start looking at what's next for the OS. While we broke the news about Redstone a few months back, there is another update wave planed for Windows 10 and it's starting to come into focus.
Threshold wave 2 is scheduled to be the first (non-patch) update to the OS after it is released and the current timeline is October. But what will it include? According to those familiar with the company's plans, not much in the way of new features are currently planned, as the primary goal is to continue working on optimization and stabilization for the OS.
Which makes quite a bit of sense- for one thing, the update will arrive only three months after the release of the OS. During that time, Microsoft will be receiving a significant amount of new telemetry from new hardware configurations and they need to make sure Windows 10 properly works with these machines.
For those not familiar, Windows 10 was code-named Threshold, which is why this updates is named Threshold wave 2...
