Last October at the Windows 10 event in New York City, Microsoft officially unveiled the Windows 10 Creators Update, codenamed "Redstone 2". At the event, Microsoft stated that the update will be released in "early 2017" but we didn't know when exactly the update will arrive.

Until now, anyway.

Per my sources, Microsoft will be releasing the Windows 10 Creators Update this April.

The more regular, smaller updates Windows gets now is such a huge step up from the monolithic releases of yore.

I was thinking along the same lines. The rolling, small updates is good for (some) techies, but it's horrible for more typical end-users. For example, just this past week a lady approached me about rescuing data off an external drive as Windows 10 had stopped recognizing it after the latest round of updates.

The drive, it turned out, was 100% fine, but Windows no longer recognized the extrnal disk. Maybe a driver was dropped or something in the latest round of updates. Anyway, my Linux box could read the drive fine and I just copied the files to another external drive her computer did still recognize. I may end up with a perfectly working spare external drive because Windows no longer see it due to Microsoft's new rolling update schedule.
