Don't expect a new Windows 10 Insider Fast ring build this week

Windows Insiders who were hoping to see a new Windows 10 Fast ring build this week may want to set their sights on next week instead.

The green screen Sarkar refers to is the Green Screen of Death, the Insider version of the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) on shipping builds of Windows. Having your PC crash for simply connecting it to power is a pretty nasty problem to have, so waiting makes sense.

It's not all bad news for Windows Insiders, though. Microsoft this week shipped Windows 10 preview build 17025 to Slow ring Insiders, making it the first Redstone 4 preview build to hit the Slow ring. The release isn't packed with a ton of major new features, but Microsoft is only just getting started with testing the next big Windows 10 release; we'll see much more before it's ready for primetime.

  • Nasty 🤔 #green
  • My Asus Transformer minis are both on Windows Insider. They have 17025 and are green screening. They lock up when you attempt to do anything with tiles on the start screen. Had to fully reset both of them.
  • Since they killed Mobile I don't give a ****.
  • Thanks for sharing.
  • W10M just received 1709, what are you talking about.
  • It's just a number.
