    Question about slow rings..help :) info needed lol!


    Hey guys.....
    I reverted back to 18290 with a clean install iso file...
    Now I changed my insider to Slow instead of fast...
    My question is the following... the latest build is 18298.. if in a week if another build is released or even 2 weeks, in the slow ring will I get the latest build or the build in between?
    Donít know if it makes sense but maybe some info, I didnít like 18298 so I went back one.. too bad theirs no option to have every second build lol..
    also.. Iím on active development of windows, if i switch to the fist option of bug fixes what would I get as updates? Or the 3rd option?

    If you backed off to the Slow Ring, based on past history, and the time of year now, you will not see an update offered for quite a while. There is nothing "in between" . You're safe on 18290 for some time to come.

    If you're on Slow 18290, nothing will be offered to you for a while. Take a look here at Jason's little spreadsheet on MS. You can see the frequency of releases on Slow, and get a better idea.

    Staying on Slow will not jump the 18298 build and offer any other build until MS releases it to Slow. That is very hard to predict. The Release Preview Ring is even slower than Slow. It gets new Store Apps and cumulative monthly fixes (patch Tuesday), but does not get real active until close to the next major public release. Months away.

    Bingo! You may get it right away, or in a couple days. Usually very soon after switching back to Fast.

Solved Blue Screen info needed in BSOD Crashes and Debugging
I have had a blue screen pop up the last couple days and it is nothing like I have seen on any earlier Windows Op Sys. It has a message at the top that goes something like "Your PC has a problem and needs to be restarted" and below this is a bar...
I'm just wondering, if 565 was rolled out to the Slow channel, has it been pulled from Fast?
