    Microsoft’s Insider Fast rings are prone to bugs, that’s an undeniable fact and a consequence of their nature. The Windows Insider program has rings which allow users to get access to in development builds of Windows 10 both for PC and Mobile devices. There have been 2 releases of Windows 10 so far, and one upcoming one, so insiders really should have gotten the hang of it by now. The fast ring is often buggy up till a month or two before the public release of the new OS. Windows 10 Anniversary Update is expected in July, so it is no surprise that a build which is received in April is slightly buggy. That does not prevent complainers from ranting about how “Microsoft sucks” and “Windows 10 is the worst ever”. It’s as mindless as walking in on a baking session, eating some batter and then declaring you don’t like the cake.

    That being said, let’s look at last week’s stories.

    Microsoft releases a new Windows Anniversary Update build for mobile

    Microsoft released a new Windows 10 Mobile build for Insiders on the fast ring last week. This build is one of the most feature packed ones yet, and also one of the buggiest so far. In terms of the positives, users can expect shiny new emojis, a revamped (albeit in progress) action center, and improvements to the lockscreen. There are many other features, but we’ve listed them in this article here.

    There are also quite a few bugs which may get you in a bit of a bind if you don’t know your way around them. The FM radio is missing, Apps may not launch, and the store might flake out on you when downloading apps. There are many good reasons to skip this build if your gut tells you not to, and I personally have downgraded one of my devices from it (windows backup makes it an easy choice).

    Nevertheless, should you choose to upgrade to this build and run into the app issue, Nokia’s App Folder app can be used to launch any and all apps on the system, eliminating the most annoying bug of them all.

    And the Groove Music team bring a new update to mobile and PC devices.

    Thanks for sharing.. bottom line is that if you don't like dealing with potential bugs then the insider program is not for you. They did say at the beginning of the year that the builds would come faster and with more bugs and that's just what's happening.

    W10 Insider + Linux

    I experienced surprisingly small amount of bugs on the desktop and few more with mobile builds. Both are used for all normal everyday tasks with no diminishing usage.

    The above snippet taken from the thread article......SPOT ON.

    MS "sucked" from very beginning, fortunately less so than others thanks to incredibly large base of programs available to it and most of them free !

    Yes. Gone back to 14295 a few minutes ago.
    Problems:
    1. Apps disappeared when minimized to the task bar. Not found anywhere in taskbar.
    2. Using Edge. Websites also disappeared when minimized. Edge icon was not highlighted either.

    No. Won't put up with that B.S. It's my computer. I can do whatever I want with it.
    Switch to Slow ring and see what will happen to next new build.
    Worse comes to worst, I'll change it to Linux, or just shut the darn thing down. This one is just my secondary device.

    Why would you want to participate in the insider program if your having that many issues?? Go back to 10586. It's stable and that might be your best bet.

    But if you want to go to Linux and I hope you have fun with that.

    Davidhk.
    Such a shame you having so much aggro with the latest Insider and that you have decided to opt out.
    Personally I have found RS-14326 extremely stable with no bugs found as yet, I can only assume something other than this version is the cause of your problem.
    Yes I have found lots of bugs and made a few suggestions to M$, but isn't that the reason for participating in this quest.

    That's why I joined the Insider Program. When I feel the need for a more stable build I boot into one of my RTM builds.

    Edit: I even joined the Insider Build on my Windows Phone.
