Chris Capossela joins us for a very special episode of Windows Weekly. We have questions for Microsoft's CMO. Microsoft may have just revealed what we will call the Windows 10 Productivity Update. Build 17063 for the Fast Ring has a metric ton of new features. This is almost certainly the next version of Windows 10. Key new feature: Timeline. Also, a first for the Insiders Program: We're explicitly testing a new feature, Sets, that may not be in this next version of Windows 10. Well, some of us are. Google releases the worst Microsoft Store app of all time: a Chrome installer app. Then Microsoft pulls it from the Store. Hilarity Ensues.
