    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update called "Autumn Creators Update" in UK


    Earlier this year, Microsoft announced that the next update for Windows 10 would be dubbed the "Fall Creators Update," carrying on the theme of creators that was first introduced with the "Creators Update." Microsoft's naming scheme for Windows 10's next update is especially odd, considering not everyone in the world uses the term "fall."

    I actually asked Microsoft about this back at Build in May. At the time, Microsoft told me that the "Fall Creators Update" was going to be its name everywhere, probably to help streamline marketing. But in countries like the UK where the term "fall" isn't a phrase used when talking about seasons, this may actually confuse customers. It appears now however that Microsoft will in fact regionally adjust its name where appropriate.

    It will be the same here in Australia. The only thing fall means here is a lack of balance

    Surely when it's Fall/Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Hemisphere is transitioning from Winter to Summer, what all of us in the north call Spring when that seasonal change happens to us?

    Will the antipodeans get a Spring Creators Update then?

    Can anyone point to anywhere on an installed system where it actually call itself 'Creators Update' ? It's 'version 1703, os build 15063...' everywhere I look. the Fall/Autumn naming only seems to be used on the advertising/info web pages...

    I don't think you'll find that reference any where but online. I haven't gone specifically looking for it in Windows, but fir what its worth, I haven't seen any such reference.

    Welcome to the Windows 10 Creators Update

    - seen on Edge Firstrun Welcome screen ever since 1703 first arrived, whenever Edge is opened automatically by default when updating to a new Insider Preview build:

    LOL. yep, Faf... it will be an Autumn update in Spring for us (...on the proper side of the globe)

    Nice that MS has finally realised there are people outside of the US... but now to get rid of the seasonal naming.. may take a few more releases, but here's hoping
