How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Dev Center: Include OS Version in Usage Analytics

In the Health page of Dev Center analytics, crashes and hangs can be filtered by OS version (RTM, 1507, 1511, 1607, etc.). Please provide this same information on the 'Usage' page. OS information is not included at all on the 'Usage' page. While I get crashes by OS (Health page), I need to cross-reference this with usage by OS to determine the overall impact of a given bug.

        I completely agree. At the moment I'm still supporting the original release of Windows 10, and I want to know if I can drop support, so it would be really useful to know how many people using my app are still on this version. At the moment the only indication I have is the number of crashes, but this may be relatively higher (or lower) on an earlier version of Windows 10.

        Having this information would make me much more confident about updating my app to use the features in the latest version of Windows 10.

        This would be very helpful in triage/prioritization of what to focus quality improvement efforts on.

        I totally agree. I'm sure this information is known to Microsoft, please make it available to all of us through the analytics page in Dev Center.
