  • Windows 10 version 20H2 rolling out to the Windows Insider Release Preview Channel

    The new version is coming. Expect Win10 version 20H2 to start appearing on forced-out PCs in a couple of weeks.

    In case you haven’t been keeping up on the version numbers, the most recent versions of Win10 are:

    Win10 version 1903
    Win10 version 1909
    Win10 version 2004
    Win10 version 20H2

    Let’s hear it for consistency in naming/branding, and failing to foretell a completely predictable conflict. I guess the new names are better than “Fall in the Northern Hemisphere Conflicted Creators Update” or whatever it was called.

    I still don’t recommend that you move to Win10 version 2004 — still too many bugs, most of which aren’t acknowledged — but I strongly recommend that you download and hold onto a clean, free copy of Win10 version 2004.
