Build 10122 coming to the Fast Ring

Build 10122 suffers from an issue that causes the Edge browser (internally known as Spartan) to crash frequently on PCs running AMD Radeon GPUs. Aul asked Insiders whether Microsoft should release it. He got an overwhelmingly positive response for an immediate release of the build. However, it will be released only to the Fast Ring initially.

The executive advised Insiders with AMD GPUs who do not want to receive the update to temporarily switch to the Slow Ring. Microsoft is working closely with AMD to resolve the issue. The Edge browser crash issue will be properly documented in the build’s release notes accompanying its rollout. His final tweet suggests that the next build of Windows 10 is coming out soon.

New build of Windows 10 to bring ‘many improvements’

The build does not seem to have any other bugs. Aul promises that it features “many improvements” and offers “pretty buttery goodness.” He said Windows 10¬†Preview build 10122 will not be rolled out to the Slow Ring until the bug is fixed. Microsoft is expected to launch its new OS in July. Windows 10 will be available in seven different versions to cater to different user groups.

Microsoft is trying to woo as many users as possible to its upcoming OS. Last month, the company said it would provide tools to developers to bring Android and iOS apps to Windows 10. But, according to Reuters, most developers are still reluctant to develop apps for Windows, and doubt how easy Microsoft’s tool will be to use.

The Redmond-based company has announced that Candy Crush Saga will come pre-installed on Windows 10. Though the new OS will be offered as a free upgrade to Windows 7 and 8 users, those using pirated copies will have to pay.
