Microsoft reportedly trimming Windows 10 Redstone’s features, to focus on the underlying structure of Windows


Last year, Microsoft released the first major update for Windows 10 to its users. The company is expected to release 2 more major updates for Windows 10 in 2016, codenamed as Redstone. With Redstone, the company is expected to introduce much-requested features like Extension support for Edge, a Continuity-like feature, a “floating” Cortana, support for widgets on the Action Center, and much more. Now, it turns out Microsoft may not be delivering some of these rumored features as the company will be focusing on improving the operating system’s underlying structure with the upcoming update.

According to a new report from Petri, Windows 10 Redstone will be focused on OneCore, the underlying structure of Windows 10. Of course, Microsoft previously stated that the company already made some structural improvements to OneCore.  The updated OneCore will allow Microsoft to compile Windows 10 builds much quickly, allowing it to deliver new builds to Windows Insiders much faster.

This obviously means that Microsoft won’t have much time to build the rumored features for Redstone, and may delay some of the features. Keep in mind that Microsoft isn’t scrapping these features, instead, they will simply delay the release of some of the features.

Windows Insiders should start seeing new features on Windows 10 sometime soon, which is, of course, pretty good news. Nonetheless, discuss what you think of Microsoft’s plans for Windows 10 in the comment section below.
