Windows 10 Creators Update is already available as an ISO file (disc image for Build 15063, thought to be the RTM build that OEMs will receive), and people have already started installing it on their systems. A wider rollout is expected on April 11 as an OTA, so Windows 10 Anniversary Update users can upgrade then. But if you’re not yet on Windows 10, you may need to get on it right away while Microsoft is still offering it for free.

Why Windows 10 Creators Update?

Creators Update is a massive leap for Microsoft. While the current version has a lot of bells and whistles of its own, CU brings game mode, 3D, Ink and Mixed Reality into the mix. As the name suggests, the focus is on creative tasks, and that’s a big step up from the Anniversary Update.

Another major reason is security. The operating system as well as the Edge browser on Windows 10 Creators Update bring a lot to the table in terms of online security. Security has always been one of the best reasons to stay with the latest version of any software application. You might not think you’re at risk with your existing setup and antivirus software, but there are new vulnerabilities found in the wild almost on a daily basis, and security needs to keep evolving at a rapid clip to keep up with the bad guys.

If you haven’t upgraded to Windows 10 yet for some reason, there’s still a free option you can take advantage of. The free upgrade to Windows 10 offer is for assistive technology users, but is open to everyone for download. If you use any kind of assistive technology tools, you’re eligible for the free upgrade.

If you’re a Windows user, there are just too many reasons to avoid the upgrade to Windows 10 Creators Update when it comes on April 11. 2017 is expected to see much more widespread Windows 10 adoption among consumers and enterprises alike. If you’re a Microsoft Windows Insider, then you’ll have seen most of the great features already on the preview builds. If not, there are lots of pleasant surprises waiting for you.
