    Anybody care to hazard a guess on a build number for the “final” build of Win10 Creators Update? I noted in an earlier blog post that I didn’t think M

        Note: ‘Thorsday’ is no spelling error. Microsoft don’t do ‘U’ turns, only a full circle of telemetry, additional advertising, botched patches and more useless apps which are increasingly difficult to remove.

        History: Thursday is named after Thor, the hammer-wielding Norse god of thunder. – Thor is represented riding a chariot drawn by goats and wielding the hammer. Thunder will be heard during the upgrade procedure.

      My guess 15066.

      April 1 (why not).

      It is a Saturday (one minute past midnight on Friday night).
      Less impact on the Enterprise and 48 hours to observe how the beta testers are faring.

      Related to the subject, Microsoft has been busy doing Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 updates cleanup behind the scenes.
      I can see a total of 69 expired updates for Windows 10, Windows 10 1511, Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 4 & 5, Flash Player for Windows 10, various versions.

      15059

      April 6

      My guess: Build 15360, because it’s a number with power of 2 and 10 significance, not unlike 10240. Of course, 14363 seemed to be nothing special so what do I know?

      Time? My gut says not for quite a while yet. Perhaps some time in early May.

        The for jumping build numbers to be special is over 🙂
        any build proved to be “stable” is picked as final

          Excellent use of quotes.

          Regarding what’s over… We shall see. Last time they jumped something like 4000 builds not long before release, because of mobile or something.

          “Break it” thinking would have Microsoft changing the way they work every time. Maybe this time it’ll be letters. Or have another suffix.

          They’re just having fun with it to see if they can make a few more sales. Putting understandable version numbers on it simply doesn’t create as much buzz.

      For obvious reasons, the release date should be 1st of April  :).

      Antec P7 Silent * Corsair RM550x * ASUS TUF GAMING B560M-PLUS * Intel Core i5-11400F * 4 x 8 GB G.Skill Aegis DDR4 3200 MHz CL16 * Sapphire Radeon 6700 10GB * XPG GAMMIX S70 BLADE 1TB * SanDisk Ultra 3D 1TB * DVD RW Lite-ON iHAS 124 * Windows 10 Pro 22H2 64-bit

      WHAT? April 1? come on people, you’re better than this!
      I’m 100% sure that the Creators update WILL NOT be released on April Fools day.

      at least abbodi86 & Microfix are making a reasonable guess like April 6 (which is a Thursday).
      I might go with dates like April 4 (1st Tuesday), April 13 (2nd Thursday) or perhaps April 18 (3rd Tuesday). The 3rd option (4/18) is when Mozilla releases Firefox 53 and that version will officially end support for Windows XP & Windows Vista.

        Now the question is, are you 100% sure it will be April 4, 13, and 18 ? I mean absolutely sure.

        Hedging a bet is an interesting approach.

      April Fools Apr. 1st. 2017 seems to me to be the best date for release. Then of course it really isn’t released and delayed for a month.

      based on that ESD links index, it would be on April 5, (maybe 6 as i anticipated :D)
