    OK, so what does this mean in English. Why does MS have a spectacular inability to explain in simple terms?


    Also, what is an inbox app?

    Because they are all Coders and talk in strange terms, and I have no idea why . They need a department that can translate Geek to English.

    Sounds like it will be RS4 builds. While the Fast ring will continue to get RS3 builds until Fall/Autumn update.

    Inbox Apps are the Microsoft UWP apps that we get from the Store.

    There was a Tweet Today from someone at MS that said that the Fall Update will be named that all over the world including Australia where it is Spring. There will be no Autumn Update anywhere.

    I will still call it the Autumn update in protest against MS's stupid naming which demonstrates their parochial nature despite all there bs about being a global company caring about rest of the world.e

    See DS kumbaya sessions as she goes around the world but fails to control the idiots who make such bs decisions eg

    paint to be removed, next day after a zillion protests - you misunderstand - it will be a store app!

    They blamed the Autumn naming on translation software!

    IMO DS has to go!

    Assuming you are right, you have explained it far more eloquently.

    Why use a silly term like inbox apps when they could say Store apps (same number of letters)!

    Most apps in the Store are not made by Microsoft, when they say "inbox apps" refer only to apps made and updated by Microsoft such as Photos, Mail and calendar, Groove etc.

    If I understand it correctly if I choose Skip-Ahead I may be able to test engineering ring builds. I choose Skip-Ahead. I don't use MR but I do use AOEMI Backupper Pro and after the upgrade tomorrow to build 16251 (at least I assume that will be the build) I will also start a daily backup using an incremental scheme.

    "inbox" I believe refers to the pre installed Microsoft Apps. All the ones with uninstall greyed out.
