    Can you guys stop changing/renaming software. Now not to use Anniversary Update? Will the same thing happen with Creator Update in 8 months or so?

    1. The Anniversary Update was a name given to the release that was made available at the anniversary of the Windows 10 release. It is considered the friendly name. If you use Anniversary Update to refer to Redstone 1, Build 14393, or Windows 10 1607, most people will know what you are referring to. The same goes for the Creators Update. If you refer to it, most will know that you are referring to Redstone 2, Build 15063, or Windows 10 1703.

        Do you know when the Creators update will be FIPS 140-2 validated?

        1. https://csrc.nist.gov/Projects/Cryptographic-Module-Validation-Program/Modules-In-Process/Modules-In-Process-List

          The (Implementation Under Testing) IUT lists the Creators Update as being added on 6/1/2017.
          The Fall Creators Update was added on 10/6/2017.

          I haven’t seen an update yet, but I would recommend checking the CSRC site out for updates.
