Windows 10 on a Billion Devices: The Background

Τα Windows 10 τρέχουν σε 1+ δισεκατομμύριο συσκευές, ανακοίνωσε σήμερα Microsoft. Ναι σήμερα η γιορτάζει επίσημα το 1 δισεκατομμύριο ενεργές συσκευές. Να υπενθυμίσουμε ότι το 1 δις συσκευές ήταν ένας στόχος που είχε put the company in 2015 during the release of Windows 10.

Windows 10

According to the company's forecasts at the time, the milestone of one billion would be reached , three years after the first official release of the operating system.

He finally did it in March 2020.

"Today we are pleased to announce that over one billion people are choosing Windows 10 in 200 countries, resulting in more than one billion active Windows 10 devices." he says This makes it a perfect choice for people with diabetes and for those who want to lose weight or follow a balanced diet. .

Yusuf Mehdi, Vice President of Modern Life, Search & Devices at Microsoft used the opportunity to state that 100% of his companies 500 are now using Windows 10 devices.

“The new features of Windows 10 and the ασφαλείας παραδίδονται τώρα πιο γρήγορα από ποτέ. Έχουμε εξελιχθεί από την κυκλοφορία μιας νέας ς κάθε τρία χρόνια, στην κυκλοφορία πολλών εκδόσεων ετησίως.”

Φυσικά στους πανηγυρισμούς της εταιρείας δεν αναφέρονται τα που προκαλούν οι ενημερώσεις σε ορισμένους χρήστες. Ας θυμηθούμε λίγο την ιστορία:

Kip Kniskern has written an article for Microsoft. Confusion reigns: what's going on with the Windows Insider Program? Αφορά ορισμένα προβλήματα και την σύγχυση που επικρατεί στο πρόγραμμα .

Let's look at the names:

The Creators Update was released in the spring of 2017 and has a release number of 1703. The Fall Creators Update (version 1709) was released in the fall, where "Fall" caused problems in some countries, as the fall (Fall) in the northern hemisphere is Spring in the southern hemisphere.

That the version 1703 was not released in March 2017, but in April and the version 1709 was not released in September 2017, but in October, it is probably not worth mentioning.

Besides, some are starting to realize that there will be a problem in the spring of 2020 as well. According to the nomenclature above, a Windows 10 version 2003 is expected to be released, but it has almost the same name as Windows Server 2003 from the previous decade. I'm curious to see how this can be resolved. Maybe they will call this version Windows 10 .

If anyone asks me if I could do something better: Probably not. First of all, probably I would not move Windows as a service and secondly I do not get paid to scratch my head to find a name for Windows 10…

Treshold, Redstone, 19H1 etc.

For Windows Insiders there were special code names like Threshold 1, 2 or Redstone 1, 2, etc. for development branches. Because this again led to confusion, the name of the development branches was changed at the beginning of 2019. Now codes are given from the year and then number 1 for the spring release while number 2 for the autumn version. Thus, Windows 10 version 1903 is the development branch with code 19H1. In the fall of 2019 will be released Windows 10 19H2 (probably as a 1909 edition).

In addition to the above, Microsoft also uses individual build numbers for Windows. Personally, I don't pay attention to them, and I believe that no "simple" He is not interested.

Kip Kniskern asked if, after four years of nonsense, it was time to create a single nomenclature for the releases of Windows 10. I totally agree and would appreciate a name scheme like the latest codes 19H1, 19H2 etc.

Major and minor updates

Businesses are furious with the semi-annual updates of new features. Meanwhile, Microsoft has tried to make a 180-degree turn. In order to maintain the old strategy (updating new features of Windows 10 twice a year), the company found a much "smarter" solution. A regular new feature update will be released each spring, supporting 18-month upgrades to all versions of Windows 10.

Let's wait for the sequel…
