Takes only a few mins to install -- as for not trying --well who was the mountaineer who said why climb Everest --"because it's there".
If it doesn't work then I don't care as I can revert - but as it's a TEST OS then I can't see what's wrong in TESTING even if another build comes out this week. Besides I was getting bored with build 9926 -- nothing was breaking on my system apart from my usual gripes about Windows Networking compared with Linux systems.
So far I haven't seen any extra problems to those in build 9926 and all my apps seem to be working. Networking is just as horrible as Windows networking always is ever since the FIRST releases of Windows that allowed networking (Windows 3.1 for workgroups I think and it was on a DOS Lan !!).
Office 2016 previews also still working on it. Went for UPGRADE from 9926 --ran the setup.exe from the ISO file. Local account also still working.
BTW dates in all European countries (EEA / EU / Switzerland) are usually in the format of dd/mm/yy or yy/mm/dd -- only in the US to they have that cackhanded method which can lead to confusion and is neither one way or the other and sorts horribly if you don't change the format. Separators are optional - usually they are a / or : ir a dec pt (.),

Yank or European, Such notation can lead to confusion, with possible consequences. What is this, for a simple example:
3rd August, or 8th March.?
Juggling, as many of us do on the web, needs caution when referring to dates.
I usually write mine as say 03mar2015 then there's no confusion.
Care is needed when using US shopping sites from Europe if you use a credit card (or debit card) as the site will want the credit / debit card expiry date --then the fun begins !!!!!. --especially if the site says enter it exactly as it appears on the card !!!!.
