Next Windows 10 Mobile build will ship with a huge bug

The new build for Windows 10 Mobile is scheduled to hit fast ring users very soon and will contain a particularly nasty bug.

The bug causes a system crash when users attempt app purchases through the store or within applications. It’s been confirmed to occur roughly 28.8% of the time and is believed to be caused by a memory management issue.

Gabriel Aul, Vice President of Engineering for the Windows Platform, broke the news on Twitter and gave fast ring users an ultimatum: either have the build early or wait for a fixed version to go live. Unsurprisingly, the majority of users voted in favour of an early release.

Other than this, Gabriel did stress that the build was very stable. Expect it to roll out over the next few days, as the delayed version was originally planned for next Tuesday.
