Microsoft will use several different names for Windows 10 Redstone 3

Windows 10 logoMicrosoft announced earlier this year that its next major Windows 10 release would be called Falls Creators Update, landing as a successor to the Creators Update, mostly because its launch date is projected to take place in the fall.

But while this designation does make sense for Americans, who refer to autumn as to “fall,” this doesn’t align with the naming used by other countries across the world, such as those in Europe.

As a result, Microsoft will be using different names for the Windows 10 Redstone 3 Update, with the new release likely to be called Fall Creators Update in the United States and Autumn Creators Update in other countries, like the United Kingdom.

Without a doubt, this could only cause more confusion among users, especially because in some parts of the world, like the southern hemisphere, the Redstone 3 update would see daylight during the spring.

On the other hand, it’s expected that most people would refer to the new update as to Windows 10 version 1709, and Microsoft itself uses the version number in its official documentation, though in the majority of videos, promos, and campaign, the firm sticks with the Fall Creators Update naming.

The Windows 10 Fall/Autumn Creators Update is projected to launch in September, with version 1709 marking the final compiling date – as per Microsoft’s naming strategy, the first two digits represent the month when a specific version launches, while the other two stand for the month, in this case September 2017.

The new OS update is currently in development as part of the Windows Insider program, but it’s already nearing the final stages before the launch, with Microsoft recently announcing the last Bug Bash program ahead of the public debut. The Bug Bash is a program ran with insiders that helps Microsoft find and fix bugs before a specific Windows 10 version gets the green light for the production ring.
