Windows Insiders Flight Hub Dashboard

Back in the fall of 2017, Microsoft released the Windows Flight Hub. This is a quick dashboard to reference when trying to sort out the many different Windows Insiders build numbers and what is the latest preview release in the Fast, Slow, Server, IoT, ISO and SDK rings.

Each build is called a flight and is associated to one or more editions of Windows 10.

Enjoy!

If you’re not already saving your work to the Cloud (OneDrive or another) then you should seriously consider doing this. It provides a better experience and also peace of mind that your content is backed up to the cloud and accessible from just about any device.
