Windows 10 Versioning

Introducing with Windows 10 Build 10586 Microsoft introduced a new versioning scheme.

Internal code name was Threshold 2. To be able to make a difference between the builds easily (beside from internal branch builds and Insider Builds) you can check the version with winver.exe

With the new Windows as a service methodology there is a new need to differentiate the builds.

Version is now written as last 2-digit release year and last 2-digit release month. In this case 1511 is equal to 2015 November.
