Why does 2004 still come with the old Edge?


I’ve done a clean-install (on a separate HDD, for test-purposes) of the 2004 final-release, via the Media Creation Tool.

I’m surprised to find though that 2004 comes by-default with only the old Edge:

I’ve installed Windows 10 Home, so I’d expect in a clean-install now to only get the new Chrome-based Edge, not the old one.

(I could understand the Enterprise SKU still coming with the old Edge, and perhaps Pro, but surely Home should drop it?)

The new-one also hasn’t been offered while I’ve been in Edge, nor in the Windows Update area in Settings.

Is it still just manual-install only for now — Microsoft aren’t yet replacing the old Edge in the install images just yet (or remotely upgrading it)?
