After a new build of Windows 10 was accidentally pushed to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring, news has leaked about Microsoft getting ready to launch three different versions of Windows, most likely created for enterprise and education users. The build in question, Build 16212, was never intended for release for Windows 10 Mobile, but that’s exactly what happened.
Fast ring Insiders for Mobile started receiving build 16212.1001.rs_iot.170531-1800 last week, but one user reported that it was coming to all three rings: Fast, Slow and Preview.
The three builds that were discovered from this mistake-pushed build are as follows:
Windows 10 Pro for Advanced PCs
Windows 10 Pro N for Advanced PCs
Windows Server 2016 ServerRdsh
These were spotted by a Twitter user, and indicate three different versions of Windows. The first of these appears to be for multi-core PCs, and was identified by MSPU to be the same as Windows 10 Pro for Workstations.
The second is the European equivalent, as indicated by the ‘N’ in the name.
The third indicates that it “may be aimed at hosting Windows-based programs or the full Windows desktop for Remote Desktop Service clients,” according to Neowin. This could be targeted at the education segment, since it can be upgraded to Windows 10 Education, according to the same source on Twitter.
Microsoft is yet to officially authenticate these SKUs, but it’s very likely that they’re going to come sooner rather than later, since they were referenced within the latest build for the Fall Creators Update.
If you’re an Insider and any of the erroneously released builds are on your PC or Windows 10 Mobile device, please read Dona Sarkar’s post.
