Last week Microsoft inadvertently released the wrong Windows 10 Creators Fall Update test build to Windows 10 PC and Mobile users in the various test rings. Some Windows Phone users currently not in the Insider program also reported getting these inadvertent test builds.
Microsoft actually planned to release new test builds of Windows 10 to both PC and mobile testers on June 1.
What that means for you is that a few of the upcoming features for a new version of Windows 10 Pro for advanced users with high-performance workstations were leaked for Microsoft’s plans for Windows 10 beyond new features for the Fall 2017 update.
There were three new versions of Microsoft Windows 10 in the inadvertently leaked file, including Windows 10 Pro for Advanced PCs, Windows 10 Pro N for Advanced PCs, and Windows Server 2016 ServerRdsh.
What is new in the upcoming Windows 10 version
Microsoft says the new version is designed for advanced users, and is the result of its analysis of Windows 10 Pro on high-end machines. Windows 10 Pro for Workstation or “Advanced” PCs is aimed at systems with up to 4 CPUs and 6 Terabytes of memory. The version will include key capabilities in the initial release, including a faster file sharing, a workstation mode, the Resilient File System (a successor to Microsoft’s New Technology File System) designed for fault-tolerance, optimized for handling large data volume, auto-correcting and much more, and expanded hardware support. According to Microsoft, ReFS is backward compatible with NTFS.
Microsoft is also offering expanded hardware support in Windows 10 Pro for Workstation, and plans to build additional capabilities some time the future to help its advanced users.
