    I know this is going to shock a lot of folks, but I agree that Insider testing is not for everyone.

    I, too, have been a formal beta tester over the years, so I knew full well what I was getting into when I joined the Insider Program.

    But even then, since MS made the program public, they went out of their way to tell everyone joining the Insider Program that there would be bugs from time to time. That same message was repeated over, and over, and over again.

    So basically, anyone still in the Insider program that whines about bugs should leave the program. Dealing with bugs is a common side-effect of being a "tester". If they can't handle that, they have no business being an Insider.

    I left the Insider program some time back because I decided to prefer a relatively stable environment over a buggy one. Nothing wrong with the program; it was just my choice.

    All kinds

    I beta tested W95 for almost a year on 386 and last version was better than first retail one.
    Tried W8 from one of first alpha and it was pretty unusable ačč the way until latest betas.
    W10 worked pretty good since day one and I used it as main system shortly after but mainly because I couldn't believe MS can get it so good at so short time.

    Well, a few days ago my laptop's hdd took a dump. I installed a new drive and did a clean install of Win 10 . Nonetheless, today attempting 14326 got to about 80% of completion and failed, restoring to the original build. Last Preview Build was unsuccessful as well. Guess I need to wait for the next one.
