Windows 10: Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10576 for PC Insider

Well, it went through the upgrade process twice and now my tablet doesn't have an OS at all on it. Awesome.
Is there any way to install a previous version ?
I just managed to clean install the RTM version, but it won't activate. Says the key is blocked.
Edit: Never mind. I'm an idiot. Accidentally installed the Pro version instead of the Home version, which is probably why it's not activating. Hahaha
About an hour to do the 10576 upgrade on my VM.
Don't think I've ever noticed this window before, probably never looked:
Looks like activate by key is live now.
It showed up in the last build.
How's the new MoBo working out?
I'm still on Office Preview 2016, which installed with no problems, activated, and renewed to give me the original 30 day trial. I have Office 2013 Pro on my 8.1, which I will eventually Move to 10 when I'm ready to make it my permanent OS.
The only problem that I see so far and which happened with 10565 is that I have duplicate Favorites folders in Edge. Some have 0 in them and a few split links between them.
Downloading this now... Yay!
Ms "Casting" is a good idea but not really implemented properly in a decently useable form at the moment.
at least it's a start.
For instance you need Blue tooth connection rather than Wifi.
You have to use the computer to cast to the remote device -- now if you are SITTING at the remote device you want to control the casting either via the TV's handset or something like a mobile phone. You don't want to rush back to your computer (which might not be accessible anyway if say you are away at another location) to start the casting process--you need a remote LOGON from another device such as a mobile phone to usefully use this feature.
So far I'll keep using my Chromecast dongle which works perfectly for casting media from a PC etc and can be easily controlled via a myriad of Phone apps both for Android and iPhone. I'm using MEZZMO but there are a load of others.
Very good MB, cool and faster SSDs now. Next week (pending pension check arrival) going to put FX6350 processor and see if I can OC it to 4.5 - 4.6 GHz, that should be quite enough for a while.
Don't really like Office 2016, wouldn't spend money on it because 2013 suits my needs perfectly although MS Publisher I use 99% of time and would gladly pay for it if it was any different in 2016 but it's same.
Microsoft Releases PC build 10565 to Insiders in the Slow ring today.
