The latest version of Windows 10, which launched today, was released over the weekend and was expected to improve performance and reduce the risk of crashes.
The OS was expected in the first quarter of 2019, and the release coincided with the start of Microsoft’s planned “Blue to Gold” upgrade cycle.
The company’s Blue to Gold upgrade plan, which started last year, included several updates that were expected to help the OS improve performance.
But as Ars Technic’s Jameson Lopp pointed out, Microsoft is also pushing the update to customers via its Windows 10 Insider program, which includes software updates, which are supposed to help improve performance by helping to fix bugs.
“We are making the update available as an Insider build and it is still available in the Windows 10 Store,” Microsoft spokesperson Sarah Ismail told Ars Technico.
“We’re still actively working to get it ready for general availability.”
Ismail did not confirm whether the upgrade would include fixes for performance problems in the OS.
“As we mentioned in the announcement, we are constantly looking for new ways to improve our software and we’ll continue to work with our partners to help them,” she added.
“It’s important to note that the upgrade is still in Beta mode and the final product will be in production and ready to deploy to Windows 10 PCs in the next few months.”
Ismet, meanwhile, told Ars that Windows 10 has a number of performance-related issues that should be addressed.
He said that the OS has a wide variety of problems that users can report and it would be better to start by finding the root cause.
“The good news is we have a team of engineers that are constantly monitoring the system to see if there are any problems that are causing performance issues,” he said.
“The more issues you see, the better it is to fix those and make sure that you’re getting the best performance possible.
The bad news is that sometimes, if you see performance issues, it may be that you just need to wait a little bit and then take a look at your system and see if it’s doing the right things.”
Microsoft has also released a number updates to help Windows 10 users who have issues with their systems.
For example, Microsoft released an update for its Visual Studio code editor earlier this week, which included several improvements to help developers improve their code.
The company has also recently rolled out an update to its Office 2017 that includes some new features for developers and users, such as the ability to quickly change a file to a new, different name.
