    We had a stable system with the first release of Win 10 TP. It's been down hill since than. I'm in no hurry for the final release. I do feel that MS should start fixing some of the problems that was introduced in the last to builds before adding more features.
    M$ did fix one bug that most users even on this forum were wanting fixed they released the ISO.

    That is definitely a plus for MS!

    The 9879 ISO released a few days ago already hints about coming Consumer version. When the install.wim file in 9879 is opened with Windows System Image Manager it shows a bit surprisingly a new version:

    Hi there

    Am I the only one but W10 build 9879 works FINE for me -- plus even the Touch facilities have been improved. Live tiles etc. I haven't tried yet (not sure whether they exist or not at this time) but as far as a DESKTOP OS is concerned I can't see what's badly broken - even for a PRE BETA release. This software probably is even pre ALPHA.

    My main gripes are when running on a Linux Host that to stop the cursor jumping randomly I have to turn the HOST touchpad off (I don't like touch pads anyway so no big deal) with the Linux command synclient TouchpadOff=1 which fixes the problem and UNITY mode is broken on W10 when running VMware workstation. These problems are probably related to VMWARE (release 11 in December) and the host Linux software rather than Windows 10.

    Networking to Windows 7 and earlier releases TO W10 also needs a little fix - you have to block port 445 and only leave 139 open -- some change in SMB file protocol handling in W10.

    Note networking FROM w10 works fine it's older OS'es accessing W10 shares where you have to do the fix. Since I'm running from a Linux HOST it might also be SAMBA itself that requires updating. The Port fix though works.

    Cheers

    I don't think your the only one jimbo. Everyone is using different hardware and software so we're going to have different results. I'm only having what I consider to be minor problems. The thing is for me, Each release is introducing more minor problems and none are being fixed. I do know some if not all my problems will be fixed in future updates. Some may not be fixed until new drivers are released. It's just a matter of time. MS can have a winner if they don't hurry to release 10 before it's ready. I also feel MS released 9879 to the slow release group too soon. I thought the whole idea of the slow release was so MS with the help of us that are on the fast release could work out the bugs first.

    Hi there

    I thought the SLOW release was exactly that -- wait until a few more bugs found and fixed - I'm surprised the Slow release has been released already - I accepted the FAST release - accepting also that there could be new issues etc - I've been quite surprised so far.

    I think though people should either run as VM's or on a TEST computer -- many of the complaints on these Forums seem to be from people trying to use this as their main / everyday working OS which wasn't what Ms intended. The fact that some people CAN make decent use of W10 as an everyday Os (even against advice) shows the builds are actually quite stable and decent considering the stage in the development cycle.

    Cheers

    Did the fast release on day one, am retired so can spend many hours a day playing games and browsing the internet.
    Can honestly say have had no problems whatsoever using my desktop with the latest incarnation on a new SSD as my main computer.
    The one proviso from a security angle being banking done on my laptop with W8.1.

    I chose to go with a dual boot. Windows 8.1.1 on one drive and Windows 10 TP on another. If I decide I like Windows 10 Final I'm going image my 8.1.1 drive and install 10 on that drive. My 8.1.1 is installed on a SSD. If 10 isn't offered with a discount I'll pass on it. IMO I like 10 but the difference between 8.1.1 and 10 isn't worth paying full price.
