The cat is out of the bag! The next version of Microsoft’s operating system has a name. And it’s going to be called the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update, to the surprise of no one.
That’s because this is a name that was thrown around before.
Speculation that Microsoft will stick with this Creators Update naming scheme first surface a month or so back, and the company was expected to officially announce the name at the Windows Developer Day event.
But that came and went, and Redmond only released a new Windows SDK for developers.
Without providing a hint at what this new major version of its OS will be called. It continued to be known by its Redstone 4 codename, even as the company neared finalizing development this month, followed by a general rollout in April.
Anyway, the mystery was finally solved when enthusiastic users dug a little deeper:

And as revealed, this is the third time the software giant has used the Creators Update naming. First used a year ago, we saw the Creators Update make its way out in March 2017, followed by the Fall Creators Update in October last year.
Redstone 4, or Windows 10 Spring Creators Update rather, is due for release next month.
It brings with it a number of interesting new addition to the platform like Timeline and HDR support, to go with small refinements across the board, to go with enhanced implementation of Fluent Design user interface elements.
Can hardly wait.
