Gabe Aul (Microsoft) Hints At Faster Windows 10 Release

March 10, 2015 -

Gabe Aul from Microsoft has been hinting at faster releases of new builds of Windows 10. He said that there have been “lots of questions” when we will get the release. Their public testing program has attracted over 2million users so far. Aul said that there’s many a few internal rings that employ even less-baked software than is released to Microsoft’s self-selected testing community. This is his diagram:

There’s apparently less external tiers than internal. Aul says Microsoft have been “too conservative about pushing builds to the Fast ring for Windows Insiders.” According to the executive, Aul’s group has had “serious conversations last week about a ‘Ludicrous Speed’ ring,” asserting it “no joke.”
