Windows has had a very active year, with over 300 million downloads of Windows 10 since it launched in the summer of 2015. Microsoft offered Windows 10 as a free upgrade until July 29, 2016. Then the massive Anniversary Update started rolling out on August 2.
Windows 10 is a very popular operating system for a number of reasons. It is fast, safe and has browser extensions that die-hard Windows users have wanted for a long time. With all of the changes to keep track of, you might be happy to know that there will be no more updates in 2016.
Microsoft has announced that there will be two major updates to Windows 10 in 2017. The first is expected early next year and is being called the Redstone 2 update. The tech giant isn't giving many details on what the updates will bring.
The Redstone 2 is rumored to be released around the time Microsoft's Surface Pro and Surface Book devices get hardware updates. Redstone 2 is said to be a larger, more important update than the one that will follow later in the year, Redstone 3. Moving forward, Windows 10 is expected to get two major updates every year.
