Windows 10 Timeline won't be done in time for Fall Creators Update

You can see things that aren't really there with View 3D and the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update

The update will be downloaded and installed automatically through the Windows Update tool, so users should be prepared for some downtime while their PCs do serious reboots as they digest the large files.

Whether you want to label them as delayed, cut, or not intended as part of the Fall Creators Update is up to you but when they were shown at Build every indication was that they were planned for the Fall Creators Update.

Responding to a Tweet from The Verge's Tom Warren, Microsoft Joe Belfiore said that the Timeline will not arrive with the next major Windows 10 update.

Of course, it doesn't matter whether that OS is Windows, macOS, Linux, Android or something else, if there's an update for it, updating to that new version is usually a very good idea. Not only does Microsoft want the entire world to adopt Windows 10, it also wants to make sure everyone is running the latest build, which is the Creators Update.

One has to ask whether this can be attributed to the rapid release cycle of Windows 10.

On Friday, Microsoft announced details about two new types of nagging popups that Windows 10 users are going to be seeing starting this week.

July 4th gas hasn't been this cheap in years
The drop in demand is unlikely to hold for the next reporting period given the Independence Day holiday weekend. Nationwide, the last time gas prices were this cheap for the Independence Day holiday was 2005.

"In each monthly quality update, we add another layer of security, one that tracks emerging and changing trends in malware to make up-to-date systems safer in the face of changing and evolving threats".

As a result it will no longer receive what Microsoft calls monthly "quality" updates, which the firm says contain protection from the "latest security threats".

"Click on Update now on the notification to update your device".

"We will start sending a notification if your device needs to be updated to the latest feature update". Also, Microsoft stresses that it's not changing the update experience itself with the choice still available over when the update occurs.

This year - 2017 - saw the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update back in March, and will see the release of the Fall Creators Update in September/October (anyone wondering if Microsoft will keep the names of the updates linked to each other in the coming years?). I imagine just simply adding the modifier of "we are looking at these features for a future update to Windows 10" would provide that clear messaging.
