Microsoft Ships Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15058

Microsoft Ships Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15058
The Windows Insider team enjoys some pie, and a sight gag.

Just four days after the previous Windows 10 Insider Preview build, Microsoft has delivered what in the past we might have called a Release Candidate.

“Today we are excited to be releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15058 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring,” is the only quote we’re going to get from Dona today because, yep, as with the past several previous builds, this new build—15058—includes no new features, of course.

Various changes, improvements, and fixes are documented in the Microsoft blog post. Nothing major there, but the discussion of known issues will be of interest to anyone experiencing upgrade issues.

    <p>I am disappointed that there isn't a picture of Dona pressing a big red button. Or maybe they're waiting for the final build for that.</p>

    <p>"<span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);">what in the past we might have called a Release Candidate"</span></p><p><br></p><p>There was a time when "RC" meant we were only 3 months away from "RTM", and 5 months away from "GA". But it was more than that. These old terms were jargon–they had very precise technical meanings and implications especially for OEM's, IHV's, ISV's, and IT admins. Those terms made sense when every version of Windows was developed using a traditional formula and timeline and the process never changed.</p><p><br></p><p>But it's a new world. The process is evolving as much as the product. The old concepts don't apply. The old terms don't apply. It's a learning process for all of us (especially those of us who build Windows for 40+ hours per week). And the old terms, while nostalgic, are also oppressive, subconsciously setting the expectation that somehow we should do the old process, just faster, and using those terms creates a mental shortcut which prevents perfectly rational people from thinking critically about how we can do *better, and faster* than before.</p><p><br></p><p>Even employees who use these terms are wrong. Visual Studio employees who described last week's release of VS2017 as "RTM" are technically incorrect — the worst kind of incorrect, if you ask Futurama's beaurocrats — because once upon a time, that would have been "RTW". So yes, we are ourselves also learning, and sometimes struggling, to contextualize the new world of software delivery.</p><p><br></p><p>But that doesn't mean we need to give up and fall back to the old terms. As a Windows fan, and as a passionate Windows developer, I hope we move on from these dated monikers and find new ways to talk about Insider builds. Because the way we talk about these things tends to influence the way we think about them, and the way we build them. And I want this evolution to continue.</p>

    <p>I hope that the fact they got Pi incorrect isn't indicative of the build quality. </p><p><br></p><p>Pi is 3.141592653 not 3.1415058 as shown on the whiteboard. </p>

      <blockquote><a href="#90583"><em>In reply to PaulCans:</em></a> It was a joke, the build is 15058 and it was released on 3/14, hence 3.1415058</blockquote><p><br></p>

    <p>Dona Sarkar is definitely trying to up the 'aren't we cool' look of the Insider team with all these, sorry, cringingly bad photos they keep releasing. Are we all meant to clap and cheer? Some of those people look very uncomfortable! I guess she's also there to add some glam to the proceedings. They needed someone a bit more photogenic.</p><p><br></p><p>Whatever you say about Windows 10, good or bad, the whole 'as a service' delivery program keeps Microsoft in the news, almost permanently. Some sites exist just to feed off the back of the Insider releases. </p>

    <p>A "release candidate" and no slow ring or preview ring updates?&nbsp; Seems odd.</p>

    <p>I sure hope Windows lets me open the dozen apps the last update broke, including the Store and Groove.</p>

    <p>WHY HAVE THEY REMOVED THE VPN's FROM ADAPTERS IN NETWORK &amp; SHARING CENTRE AGAIN!!!! AAAAAARRRRGGGGG!</p><p>Now you cannot set that you don't want your internet connection going through the remote gateway. They did this before in a previous release, we all kicked off about it and they put it back. Why has MS got NO corporate memory!???</p>
