Supremo of the Windows Insider programme, Dona Sarkar, dropped a hint last night as to what might have occurred with the release of build 17134 to the courageous soldiers on the Fast ring.

Microsoft explained on official Windows Experience blog why it delayed the launch of Windows 10 Spring Creators Update. While Microsoft has not officially named the update (despite using the term "Spring Creators Update" in materials several times) sources state that it will be called the "Windows 10 April 208 Update", according to a video discovered by Microsoft aficionado WalkingCat. Since then, there have been no new features added to the OS, no Microsoft-sanctioned hardware in the pipeline, with third-party app support also grinding to a halt. Of course, there are always alternatives for the handful of Windows Mobile users out there refusing to leave the sinking ship, like simply accessing Instagram.com on their Edge browsers.

Windows 10 is a service, meaning it was built in a very different way from its predecessors so it can be regularly updated with not just fixes, but new features, too. In other words, no date yet.

"You can upgrade your PC to Windows 10 version 1803 by joining the Windows Insider program, however, Microsoft has always recommended users to avoid the insider builds on primary PCs due to the driver compatibility issues and bugs, so it's better to wait". But we'll tell you exactly what Microsoft does - don't put it on your main computer, it may well bork.

Roaming usage info will appear as soon as Windows 10 users start using roaming data. Instead of creating a Cumulative Update package to service these issues, we made a decision to create a new build with the fixes included.
