    You have not missed anything, 8 is garbage

    I use it for about 1 to 2 hours per day, reading things in the apps, checking internet and email (general things I do first thing on a morning)

    After that I am glad to go back to Windows 8, as the workflow for me is much nicer

    When the consumer version comes out I might use 10 a lot more

    Hi there.

    Anybody who uses a Technical preview as a "Production" computer - either doesn't really NEED a computer or .......................

    Enjoy testing - but as a production OS -- not yet. !!!!

    I'm with you Jim, lamenting that currently I don't have a spare machine or even enough spare parts to slap one together.
    However I am enjoying reading about others' experiences and viewing their screen-shots.
    For the spring-boarders from the 7 forum, there is enough common cause here that hopefully, M$ will listen to those who are testing.
    In the meantime, all I can do is hope my situation changes before April so I can check it out for myself, or just wait for the retail release.

    I'm using it in VMware, I'm posting from it now, I don't use it all the time though as I'm still finding my way around sorting out what I want installed on it. I like it and hopefully will buy it if the price is right when it comes out, it would be great if they did a deal the same as they did for Winows 7. I'd much prefer to have a full retail copy.

    Using Windows (10) Technical Preview, (is it called Windows 10 officially yet, or not?), every day; enjoy it a lot, surprisingly way more stable than I thought it would be.
    As far as I can tell, nowhere within the system are there any references to "Windows 10"

    If the key SKU designations are anything to go by... Technical preview is referred to as Win Next Pre-Release which only has OEM SKU's viz. CSL, CountrySpecific, CoreConnected etc ( - that probably explains why we are using Windows 8 keys for this release) - others are named merely Win Next ( has Starter and Professional - no Core SKU that I can see)

    We'll see what new builds have in store

    Are you using a laptop or a desktop?

    K, we'll call it by it's current 'official' name, (WTP), for now!

    Hi there.

    Anybody who uses a Technical preview as a "Production" computer - either doesn't really NEED a computer or perhaps they should go and join the I.T depts. of either those Banks that seem to have their ATM's out of service because of releasing untested software into production or get a job at one of those Governmental I.T projects where several BILLION dollars of hard earned taxpayers money are spent and totally wasted as the system is abandoned part way through.

    I'm all in favour of TESTING machines - or even PARALLEL running stuff - sooner or later a cutover from one system to the other will be done but to use "in your day job" an untried OS which expires in April seems to me the height of idiocy.

    For starters one doesn't know what security flaws are in it or what data is being collected and sent to who knows where. I have NO problems with Ms wanting to gather as much info as possible about the performance scenarios of their OS, what hardware it's running on, what problems are encountered etc. But I CERTAINLY DO NOT want things like Bank details etc being collected - even if Ms is doing this by accident.

    Having adequate backup should be a given anyway whatever OS is being used - but there's a HUGE difference in a home user restoring a few GB of data to a major Bank having to switch systems and possibly recover several PB of data. (Peta bytes -- 1PB - 1000 X 1 TB).

    Enjoy testing - but as a production OS -- not yet. !!!!

    Cheers

    First off I need a computer and I use Windows 10 as my daily OS.
    Second, I've worked at quite a few IT shops to understand what disaster recovery is all about and I have my system fully set up to restore it in about one hour from nothing.

    IMO, I have zero concerns about my banking information being on my current Windows 10 PC. I'm having lots of fun and using Windows 10 as my production OS.
