Earlier today, Microsoft's Gabe Aul asked Windows Insiders to help decide whether or not the company should release a new build of Windows 10 with a known issue that could prove particularly frustrating for some users.
Specifically, build 10122 - which Aul described as a "GREAT build" - has been plagued by "frequent crashes" when using the Edge browser (referred to by its development codename, Spartan) on PCs with AMD GPUs. He asked those testing Windows 10: should Microsoft release it, or not?
The response from the Insider community was overwhelmingly in favor of an immediate release of the new build to the Fast Ring. And as a result of that input from Windows 10 preview users, Gabe has now confirmed that Microsoft will roll out build 10122.
His final tweet on the subject hints that the rollout of Windows 10 build 10122 should be coming pretty soon.
The issue with Edge crashing on systems with AMD graphics cards will be documented in the release notes accompanying its rollout. Gabe also advised that anyone currently on the Fast Ring who would prefer not to have to deal with this should "go switch to Slow temporarily", adding that it won't roll out to the Slow ring until the problem is fixed.
