Microsoft seems to be continuing the tradition of relating their big releases to the codename Redstone even up to the fourth nearly a year and a half away.

Now that we’ve seen what’s coming in what has officially been titled the Creators Update, enthusiasts have turned their sights forward to wonder what’s next.
