Folks, we’ve got some bad news for all of you out there who can’t wait to download and install the Spring Creators Update: Microsoft delayed the release of the new OS.

The Redmond giant tool this surprising decision after Dona Sarkar’s team found a severe bug in the operating system’s code. As a result, Microsoft preferred to play on the safe side and postponed the update in order to buy more time to fix the problem.

This was actually a wise decision. Rolling out a buggy update would have triggered a lot of discontentment and anger among users. New Windows 10 OS versions are notorious for the bevy of issues they trigger shortly after release, and Microsoft wants to reduce these problems.

Windows 10 Spring Creators Update’s release date

The next question is: When will Microsoft roll out the SCU? Obviously, the answer depends on how fast its engineers manage to fix the broken code and we’re pretty sure this will take more than a couple of days. We’re talking more about a few weeks here.

Microsoft needs to first solve this problem and then roll out the new OS version to Insiders for testing. In this manner, the company will make sure that the hotfix really works and it’s safe to push Windows 10 version 1803 to the general public.

Most likely, build 17133 will remain the RTM build. Microsoft doesn’t need to change the build code that much and won’t add any new features to the table either. There’s no reason to actually change the build name as the next version won’t bring any major changes — just a fix for the problem that delayed the initial release.

Microsoft already rolled out the first ever cumulative update for the Spring Creators Update. However, KB4100375’s release notes don’t mention anything about fixing a major code bug. Instead, judging by user reports, this patch causes more issues than it brings fixes.

So, what do you think about Microsoft’s decision to delay the Spring Creators Update release? Let us know in the comments below.
