    Too late for me.
    I couldn't find it without going via WIP.

    I suppose once I've downloaded it, I can cancel WIP.

    I installed W10TP in the latest version of VMware Player (for Linux) from a mounted ISO.
    It took just under 20 minutes on my PC.

    Now I have to decide what programs to install (for testing).

    Hi there
    my first effort really gave problems with VMware -- have since re-downloaded the ENTERPRISE version -- everything seems to be going OK this time -- also installing a Windows to go on Box nr 2.

    I gave up on the NON enterprise version as I want to try upgrade in place as well and I need to have the same release level to do the upgrade (enterprise ==> enterprise or non enterprise==> non enterprise).

    Well my first thoughts on 10 are a really good step in the right direction. To be fully excepted by Enterprise it needs a "Windows 2000" and" Windows 7" theme option. Windows 2000 skin for those at work who get a plain desktop on lab computers etc. A Windows 7 skin for general purpose use. I am sure these will be in the next release. I am liking what I am seeing. Now we know why the August update to 8.1 was effectively pulled at the last minute. This is it, M$ made the decision to quit working on 8.1 and roll the talent into producing the next version of Windows. Yes there are rough edges, things are missing but we must not forget it is work in progress.
    They said on stage the OS will automatically swap modes to desktop and touch modes (Continuum) with correct hardware. We should get a manual override too. For pre release software this is exceptionally stable. I remember testing Vista ,XP 98, and 95 and they were bad as preview. Who is General Protection and what is he doing on my PC?
