"Redstone" is apparently the codename of the first major update to Windows 10 and inside reports claim it will arrive next year while the initial release of the next-gen operating system from Microsoft is scheduled for this summer.
Codrut Nistor,

The upcoming Microsoft Windows 10 has been referred to by the codename Threshold for quite a long time. Now, although Windows 10 is still in the public testing stage, rumors about what appears to be the first major update of Microsoft's next-gen operating system are already here.

While the rumor contains no details about the features of this update, it is interesting to notice that its name is the same of a popular Minecraft item, namely Redstone. Microsoft already mentioned that major updates will come more frequently in the future, and it looks like Windows 10 Redstone will come out next year, while the initial Windows 10 release should launch this summer.

Microsoft officials did not confirm anything yet, but two insiders who spoke to Neowin claim the Redmond giant entered the planning stages of this update. Since next-gen Windows Server is also expected to launch in 2016, it is possible for the Redstone codename to hide this release for the enterprise and not the first major update of the mainstream operating system.

There are many questions unanswered about Redstone for now, but be sure we will get back to it as soon as we hear more, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
