Microsoft app store listing refers to "Windows 10 Creators Update (Build 14800 or greater)"

Today, Microsoft is hosting a Windows 10 event in New York City, at which it's likely to unveil a new Surface all-in-one PC, and possibly some other devices and peripherals. We've also been expecting to hear some official details on the next major update to its OS - but it looks like one key detail may have been revealed prematurely.

The Windows Store listing for the new Microsoft Paint app - developed under the codename 'Newcastle' - doesn't offer much information about the new app, but it does include this intriguing paragraph:

This application requires joining the Windows Insider Program (https://insider.windows.com) and installing the Windows 10 Creators Update (Build 14800 or greater)

Windows Insiders are familiar with the next big Windows 10 update by its codename, 'Redstone 2'. But while the Redstone 1 update eventually became known as the Anniversary Update, which was released in August, it looks like the next one may be called the 'Creators Update'.

It's worth noting that this could just be placeholder text, and it's possible that Microsoft may announce an entirely different name for the update. We'll hopefully find out today at the company's event.

We're at the event to bring you all the details of what's announced today, and you can also watch it live with us right here.
