  • Will Win10 1903 and 1909 co-exist?

    I’m still scratching my head over this one. Please tell me if you’ve heard anything, official or otherwise.

    Sometime in the next few weeks, Microsoft’s going to release Win10 version 1909. We know it’s going to appear as a cumulative update to Win10 1903 — just like a Service Pack, which is great.

    Here’s the question: Will Win10 customers be able to continue to use and update Win10 1903 without making the leap t0 1909?

    We have concurrent patches in beta testing with builds 18362.xxx and 18363.xxx separately available. The former apply to 1903; the latter to 1909.

    Will the stubborn ones in the crowd (e.g., me) be able to stick with 1903 for a while, to see what, uh, surprises await us in 1909? If you’ve seen anything official, please post a link!
