Microsoft is gearing up for the big Redstone 4 launch

Microsoft is preparing for the company’s big launch of the Windows 10 Spring Creators Update aka Windows 10 version 1803 or simply Redstone 4. Redstone 4 is expected to reach users next month, and the rollout will come in stages which will give Microsoft enough time to address potential compatibility issues.
