    The scenario I am dreading is that if the restore is turned off in all the comps I support around the district, I am going to be peeved off if it takes hours to fix a problem instead of minutes to restore.

    However, all those comps will have up-to-date images to fall back to, eh?
    Sure, and of course, you aren't putting all your computers in the district in the Insider's Preview program, anyway, right? Of course not... Minor inconveniences and bugs like this are just part of the beta-testing program, imo.

    As I have all my machines on Insider Fast Ring, all running build 14271 as of this morning, could you please educate me and tell why I shouldn't do it?

    The core of Windows 10 is stable and well functioning. The build upgrades might contain some minor bugs but as they are built on a working core, I can personally see no reasons not to upgrade as soon as a new build is available. In any case, I always read the the MS articles about known issues before deciding if I want to upgrade or not.

However, I run with my taskbar at the top of the screen anyway by default--so when I see the default at the bottom it never looks right in the first place...

    Well, then, you have no complaints, right?... I interpreted your original post as a complaint and was simply pointing out the obvious. Since you know what you're doing then I apologize for the unneeded advice...!

    You are mixing me with someone else now .

    My post was a response to your post quoting another member. I just replied to it because I disagree with you; I see no reasons why I shouldn't use the latest Fast Ring builds as my main OS.

    No hard feelings, just stating my opinion.

    I've been using the insider build(fast ring) for some time with no issues. The only way I found to really give the new build a complete test is by
    using it every day. If I were to either dual boot or run it in a VM there's a good chance I wouldn't use it that often to really test it out properly.

    Just my 2c on the topic..

    Me too, no disasters yet for long time, nothing to detract from usability. Besides, there's always good old MR backup.

    I think you hit the nail on the head there. If you don't run it you don't know.

    All my machines (real and virtual) are fast ring except for two. One is my wife's laptop (she likes the windows 7 MS Spider Solitaire over any other version and I can't make it work on any RS1 release). At the moment therefore she is back on 1511. The other is a VM I use to connect to one client who likes me to connect using WebEx. That also didn't work after 1511 and so I've left it there on 1511 also.

    I would never have noticed it if all I did was upgrade a VM and play with it for half an hour. I prefer to upgrade, try it and if I can't get it to work as @CountMike says restore back and try later.

    It is worth keeping on trying - TOR didn't work on build 14251 but now does for example. Apparently WebEx now works but I've not tested it (I can't ask a client to wait while I try a different VM - it makes me look incompetent).

    Running well with no issues of note. Oracle even pushed out a test build of VB that works so it's back to normal here.
